Aha! The gain switch is on the bottom. It really sounds like that was the problem.

I found that the 10dB setting really opened up. Initially I had the same problem with this amp as Kees. Switching to the 18dB setting really seemed to help. But after over a hundred hours of use I switched back to the 10dB setting, turned the volume knob to around the 11:30 position, and what I heard was nothing short of astounding. What an amp, and what amazing headphones!

What dac suggestions is there for the bcl + hd650? Price range of up to €300.

I have the Linear. Is the Linear SE an upgrade, i.e better sound, or is it the same thing in a nicer box?

Only the BCL USB version has a built in DAC. The standard BCL or BCL SE doesn't.

 

I'm currently using an Audiolab M-DAC but previously used an Arcam rDAC. The M-DAC is a 'cleverer' unit ith more features and a more detailed/revealing sound. The rDAC is slightly warmer and a tad more musical but is limited with options/inputs. The M-DAC is very tweakable and looks better on the desk IMO.

 

The M-DAC also has a half-decent headphone output so you could use this whilst replenishing your bag of money for the BCL :)

Already bought the BCL USB :)

The Arcam rDAC seems enough for me, and fits nice into the budget (450 EURO).

The M-dac is out of budget :(

 

Thanks for the info!

What kind of power cord does Lehmann use for the BCL. Is it a generic run of the mill IEC cord or does it have some Lehmann branding? I am in UK so just wondering.

The BCL IMO is the most underrated amp.

The 650 combo I heard at my uncle's house blew my mind at the capabilities of the 650 with the BCL I really can't digest the 650's sound with the STX.

I the UK Lehmann is highly rated. But I find its performance with HD800 to be only satisfactory and nothing special.

Oh , T1's with the BCL supposedly are very good ..... exceptionally good.

I haven't tried though , they don't get the thickness out with the 800's , am I right ?

Dont understand what you mean by "thickness"?

Well actually I think I used the wrong term , I was talking about the bass extension

Again I have heard , never tried them out myself.

Is it true ?
