Senn Hd650s paired with Darkvoice 332 quick updateJust a couple of additional quick comments for those on this thread who have asked me for my reactions to my new HD650+Darkvoice 332 pairing.
I have taken a couple of short breaks over the last 8 hours since my Darkvoice arrived, other steady immersion in the sounds flowing into my ears.
Currently listening to "Versatile Heart" by Linda Thompson. If you don't already have it, get it one way or the other. It is just that good. Of course everything either Linda or David or the both of them together have ever done is great.
Right now on the 6th time through in repetition of "Beauty" a song especially written for Linda by Rufus Wainwright. I am not sure I can remember a more totally "beautiful" piece of music. The strings, violins, cello, viola separately and merged together simply caress her incredible voice. And her voice, her voice is one of the more senuous things I have expeinced in a very long time. Her words literally reach out and touch parts of me that run very very deep. The harmony on the song is sad and beautiful at the same time.
The Darkvoice is amazing at pushing the music deeper and deeper into my senses without seeming to be applying any pressure whatsoever. The music and the feelings and textures that go with it are just there, in the very center of my mind. The HD650s start out as being superb phones, with the Darkvoice they are fully actualized.
I am already looking forward to swapping out tubes to fine tune the sound just a tiny bit more.
