Question. I prefer to use optical from my pc to connect to my dac and not usb. With the HA-1, if I do use optical can still power/connect to a secondary hp amp (BHC) with the dac from the HA-1 without using any usb?
I believe that I have finally replaced my hd650's. Never thought that I would. Since I got the hd800 I'm just not listening to them anymore. I you have interest pm me before I put them up for sale officially.
I have several albums on my "near perfect" list:
1. Muddy Waters: Folk Singer
2. Cowboy Junkies: Trinity Revisited
3. Alison Krauss: Forget About It
4. Miles Davis: Kind of Blue 24/96
5. Jill Barber: Mischievous Moon
And many more...
Some of you are problem free with the connectors but...some have trouble. Please consider the greater picture here. I wouldn't call it an alarming percentage but it would definitely be a concern for a company I'd think.
Go over to any of the Audeze threads and listen for someone to complain about the connectors. You only hear one thing...crickets.
