Pros: ultra rich nuance reproduction, Pure Class A, Full discrete, Full balanced, No noise and No channel imbalance electric control attenuator called LECUA
Cons: treble little bit too soft which tame HD800s treble, sound little bit too slow and too soft
Chord Hugo etc + Luxman P-700u + HD600/650/800 combo sounds really heavenly!
with this combo, HD800(modified, balanced) sounds no harshness at all.
Slightly warm and soft sounding not analytical. Sound very smooth and organic and massive rich nuances.You can hear every flaw of your DACs.
