Hope this thread can be resurrected as these are still great headphones and now a plethora of equipment is out that does well with them for much less than before. Yesterday, in Portlans at Echo Audio, I auditioned these with a Music Hall Dac-amp 25.3 (MSRP $550). This is a serious piece of hardware and has 4 different DAC Inputs (BNC) as well as RCA outputs (a true preamp) and differential XLR outs as well. Anyway, upon looking at the MusicHall page I saw it has a tube...
00lunar, overall, a very good and thorough review (obviously not your first). On your request for feedback, couple things: it went a little long. I always proofread my own reviews...if I get tired or bored, I know I need to trim. Second, nothing wrong with your English, just maybe have a buddy proof it for you (my wife does a great job...you can't use her : )All in all, great review...Im going tomorrow to an audio shop in Portland to audition 2 of these players for the...
Uh, it's the same amount of GBP as dollars...why wouldn't Brits just buy it in US and have the exchange rate save them 50%?
This is probably the only comparison that matters, had one, bought the other, the. Went back to the first...no regrets. Now, anyone know if the 901 can be run off a batt power source? I just picked one up off Monoprice that will recharge my my iPad maybe 3 times.
Hey all, I have the same question.  I email Schiit Audio and they recommend for tube "be looking at Lyr 2, or if you want to stay solid-state, Asgard 2".  With their Bifrost, of course.  I tried them with my main system's Creek Destiny 2 and Wavelength Brick and the sound was underwhelming, but the Destiny wasn't built for headphones, plus, I'm not going to keep $4-5K tied up in a headphone amp/DAC setup.
I'd like to know the same for Windoze 8
As a reviewer for an online only publication, I can tell you that negative reviews are not taken well by mgmt., as most of thier income comes from advertising dollars paid for by...you guessed it!  The company's who's products we review.  Bad reviews, no more advertising dollars.   I love that Robert Harley from The Absolute Sound recently called an $8000 component a "giant slayer"...HA!  How many times do you have to win the lotto to call a piece of kit worth 1/4 the...
I just noticed that the Oppo-95 is the ONLY Stereophile Class A rated source component under $5K (most are over $10K), so being bested by an $89 player is terribly unlikely.  As for being kicked in the teeth by CA in terms of build quality, I wouldn't anything would kick a Rotel power supply or ES9018 SABRE 32-bit DACs in the teeth, but if so, it would most likely be one of those $20K esoteric players.   My only beef with the 95 was that, with the great DACs in it,...
RadioKing59, Thanks so much for giving me the advice about the Amazon wish list...I watched that Gold 57 in Concert album for a week at $41 and I just swiped it for $19...plus I bought the Live at the Sands, both for $31 including shipping.  Now, I'm a happy camper.  Thanks to all on the forum.
 Hi all, I'm planning on running an M-DAC with Creek Destiny integrated, anyone use this setup or have any input.  The creek sound is so clean and midrange so smooth I'd think it would be hard to go wrong with it (I'm currently using an HRT Streamer II and its WOW but only USB in).   Thanks, Cory
