    I've used Wharfedale Isodynamic headphones for last 10-15 years, after having them stored away for much longer (bought circa 1973).
    I had a 'eureka' moment; in the 90s i owned Audio-Technica ATH 1000 headphones, but digging out the Isos showed me much better sound!
    They just need more watts - I run them from speaker outlets.
    I've often wondered how they compare to more modern planars. Jerry (Jandl)got a pair in his hi-fi travels and tells me the Isos are better than several phones he's tried.
    I've had the pads recovered by a Leatherworking friend.
    The Oppos interest me-well, so do the Meze Elites, but....£4K?
    I'll have to find a local Oppo owner.....and compare.IMG_3420.jpg

    I'm happy to send them to you, if you want to give them a try for a bit.

    I had one of those Sugdens Martin, nice sounding amp, but boy do those heat sinks get hot.

    This thread has opened my eyes to all things Lenco, they seem to have sneaked past me un noticed in the past.

    I feel a project coming on.

    I remember you brought it along to one of the NEBOs. When I got there you had it through some Tannoys and were getting a good sound and then we couldn't get a decent sound out of them for the rest of the day. We never figured that out.

    That's right, well remembered.
    I had a similar issue at another meeting when one of my Nord amps sounded strange, muffled, in both cases got them home and they sounded fine.
