Isn't it. I have a pair of Amperex Orange globes in mine and I can't believe how amazing my 650s sound. I'm finally understanding what they say about these headphones scaling up with the right gear.
lyr and OG is a tough act to beat. The BH crack is good also if you're into DIY.
Well I am going to put my vote on the Woo WA6. In my opinion, a hell of a lot more musical than the Lyr and the HD 650s don't need that extra power.
ALO Pan Am. Kills the WA6.
This sounds too good to be true. I was like... "Oh, newb post." But you've been on the forum since 2004! I'm totally intrigued. I've been looking for more impressions of the Pan Am with the HD650, especially since its low profile would be better for office use. Is the additional gateway necessary in your opinion w/ the HD650? And last, if you don't mind, can you compare the Pan Am/HD650 combo w/ either the Crack or Lyr?
