It's a Sansui AU-2200 from the golden era of Sansui - where Sansui was truly great.

 

'grats man! I fondly remember those days too - my dad was a bit of an audiophile back then, and even though I wasn't into headphones I still remember the deep musicality of some of those early beasts from the days of hi-fi. Even at low levels they just dripped power and warmth. Back when a "loudness" button and bass-and-treble dials were all you had and all you needed. I remember some vintage Tannoys he had brought with him from England when he emigrated - can't imagine what they'd be to have now.

I love the way that the thread twists and turns with none of yer usual noses in the air because a post dared to move off topic!!! That's what has made it so good imo.

I use the Polaris a lot with mine and the briliant Ifi DAC/amp. Both very high powered and make the Senn sing.

+1 mate - keeps it alive and interesting. We all love the 650 sound and it's a benchmark for all our comparisons and tests. Beats "so I like the 650 - do you like the 650?" any day.

you mean the 650 per se? with which amp, do tell....

i meant i have Kodo / Heartbeat Drummers of Japan album...the Sheffield Lab version and with HRT. Music Streamer>Speedballed Bottlehead Crack>HD650 it really gives me chills...wonder how it would sound with HD800 with its expansive soundstage.

interesting new thread with HD800 compared to RS1i, if you're interested.

I have no idea how that's a comparison. Yeah the HD800 is bright but the RS1i sounds like music's coming out of an answering machine. There have been two headphones in my life where I put them on and had no idea how people enjoy the sound, one was the Sennheiser IE800 and the other is the RS1i.

I'm surprised the D.R. on that version only measures DR13. Must be the RMS averaging and the fact that it's an almost continuous stream of drum beats, because the perceived range is very impressive indeed!

Damn that thread's title is off-putting lol.
