Seems like the majority opinion is for the Lyr....

post #9167 of 21433
Are the Lyr also recommended over the WA3? Am thinking of going Lyr. Not my favorite look, but sound > aesthetics

What about the ALO Audio Pan Am? Tis a beautiful amp...

post #9170 of 21433
I like the ALO Pan Am. If I had the spare cash, I would love one as it also has a built in DAC. And it drives the HD650 really well.
post #9171 of 21433
Well, right now I'm collecting funds for my HD650 purchase. I bought the Pan Am on Black Friday, $100 off. I'm using it right now with my K702s, and, well, now I'm able to see how it, once upon a time, was a flagship. I can't wait for my HD650s. And then the LCD-3s. Doh, I'm getting too far ahead of myself here. But seriously, is the darkmart refurb a good deal? Besides the credit card fraud and information trafficking?

I thought I needed an external amp to listen to my PC, but the 650 seems to sound fine to me. Asus Realtek HD Audio Manager is installed on the PC, which is a few months old, built from components by a friend. Supposedly the sound card is supposed to be really good (for work reasons-I was to use Dragon to dictate things for work), not sure where to find more info on the card. I did notice my desktop speakers, Audioengine A2's, sounded much better when connected to the new PC (so did my 18 year old daughter, who commented on how great it sounded without prompting from me). I'll try the headphone out into my HiSound Studio when I have a chance, see if it makes any difference. Just curious if others have had same experience.

Hi there,

 

Well finally I got my HD 650, I bought them from Senheiser online store last black friday. I´m pairing them with my Schiit Valhalla and cambridge audio magicdac 100. And after 20 burn in hours I am begining to hear that sound everybody seems to love.

 

I try them using amperex, tesla and telefunken tubes, I have to say that Tesla tubes do a great job with these cans, but telefunken´s are both great... Amperex seems to be my favorites paired with my k702´s.

 

Well HD650 are really great and now I´m here like a bunch of you ... loving these Senheiser´s.

 

Cheers!

Been listening to my new HD 650 for the past 2-3 days. Love them...

Bifrost -> Asgard -> HD 650.

Either way, Loveless will sound amazing

Seems like a good setup! Does the Bifrost + Asgard combo had a good synergy with HD650?

Yes, it's a good pairing. But you will always wonder if you should have gone straight to the lyr...the answer is yes. biggrin.gif

I didn't want this one to get away without putting in a word for the Hifiman HE-500 .... blows the other 2 out of the water.... IMHO.  Usually these are ruled out because of budgetary constraints.... but if you can afford them  you should do some more soul searching before jumping on the 650s.
