post #13891 of 36845

I always preferred tubes to SS for the HD650 but at the moment I have the LME49710HA x2 in my Matrix M stage  with OPA627AP x2 in the DAC section and I am pretty happy.

 

At least till I get my Crack/speedball done.

I currently have HD700 but sold HD650 and D7000 and for me HD700 have everything I enjoyed with HD650 but they have wider sounstage, better 3D imaging, instruments separation and details retrieval with both WA7 and Schiit stack with 6N1P tubes for Lyr

Hi everyone - 

 

I am planning to acquire HD650 in near future and considering an economical odac/amp pair - specifically between schiit modi/magni and o2+odac. anyone know which pair suits better with hd650? or is there something else around that price point that i can consider? thanks in advance..

Either will be fine. The m/m stack is less expensive and looks nice. :biggrin:

Yep, sitting here listening to The Wall album now thru my little dot mk3 and hd650 :) Loving the sound, altho going to the Roger Waters The Wall concert this summer in Gothenburg was a tiny bit better ;)

 

Edit : Also Echoes, is frickin amazing!!

Is it normal for the vocals to sound like they're coming from the front? Maybe it deals with the "burn-in" process?

Yes to first question, no to second.

Perhaps the wrong place to ask but with my O2/ODAC set up, I noticed that the audio output gets 'choppy/laggy' sometimes and I am unsure why. It is currently plugged into my USB port on the monitor so maybe the monitor USB is not feeding it enough power? What if I plug it into my desktop and the same still occurs?

 

Edit - it appears that it might be a power problem, the ports are my monitors definitely do not have enough juice to power the DAC... Is this something that can be fit? All these cables are killing me! :( I do not want to be plugged in from the front of my desktop (the 4 ports are the back are occupied for the monitor, external hard drive and keyboard/mouse... All I have are the two front ports that are free..

Looks like power issue, but given the monitor acts as a hub, and you have a few items connected, it may not be getting data on the required speed.

My HD 650 came today and I am thoroughly enjoying them. :)

Dont do that, plug the ODAC directly into the back of your pc.  The power supply in monitors is especially noisy too, to the extent i have my monitors USB hub disconnected from the pc.

I had the the same problem with my M&M stack. It resolved itself when i tried a different USB plug; almost definately a power problem.

 

You can try buying an AC-powered USB hub.

Plus expect less (a notch) mid and bass body, than yes, I think HD700 is the right path.
