With extended listening it is huge. With direct AB from the dashboard it is small.

One additional point.

There is a 'No Limits' compensation curve available for the HD650 (and the 800).
This curve extends all the way down to 20Hz (not 35Hz) before falling off.
This can significantly help the very low end.

Sonarworks can supply this curve, as can I.

If interested, PM me and I'll send you a copy of this 'No Limits' curve.

Sorry to repeat my previous question but in both your opinions, how does SW influence the HD 650 typical smoothness? Which is lovely and at the same time made me want to grab the HD 600.

It makes it crisp. Perhaps more so than 600 I'd guess.

listening to Schubert's piano sonata D850, played by Alfred Brendel in the 70-ties on my HD650 and DAC19 -> V200 amp...damn it sounds bloody glorious :eek:

 

 

So glad I switched from my Philips X2 to the HD650, thanks you all for your input :beerchug:

Thinking about a new dac for my 650's. Leaning towards the Bifrost 4490 or multibit. Is the multibit worth the extra two bills?

No.

All transparent DACs sound more or less identical.

Multibit is NOS, so isn't transparent.

Most DACs are transparent. Including Modi, ODAC, STX, iPhone etc.

Haven't heard the 4490, but I've got the bimby. Highly recommended.

I was leaning towards the bimby, but I've been hearing good things about the 4490...

Get ready to hear details you never knew were in the music. I was constantly turning my head looking for and thinking I was hearing noises in the house.

I hear that feeding a Project Ember using a 6SN7 via an iFi iDSD.

I heard the Ember is pretty good. Near the Bottlehead Crack as far as quality is concerned?
