I have an HD-650 coming in the mail tomorrow. Will be comparing it to the Symphones Magnum V5. We'll see how it goes!

HDTracks have a 24/88.2 Sophie Milman album. I'm a fan of her voice.

Never thought I'd see the day that it would be this hard to give something away

I want to convey my opinion on my HD650 I got just a week back. I have read all the reviews criticism and everything and tested my cans

through all kind of music. I do not have a expensive setup but I have customised it to deliver the best.

 

My setup on my mac-> FLAC/mp3(320kbps) -> Audinirvana -> Audio Hijack Pro (Add a Lowshelf Filter to amplify the lower frequencies which will improve the bass)

-> Fiio E7(will replace by E10) -> E9 (high gain mode) -> HD650

 

And i would say I am more than satisfied by the sound production of HD650. Clarity and authenticity of sound signature of different instruments are wonderful.

If I am not satisfied with the bass of some tracks I will notch up the Lowshelf Filter a lil to improve. Other than that I have no complains whatsoever. With future

upgrades I am excited that sound will improve further.

Amp question for the HD650.

 

How does the Little Dot MkIII compare to other tube amps like the Schiit Lyr, ALO Pan Am, Woo Audio WA3, etc?

 

I am using the Little Dot MkIII at the moment, however, a lot of ppl seem to give high praises to the Lyr/HD650 pairing. For those who have tried different amps, is the Little Dot MkIII comparable to the Schiit Lyr, or are they totally in different leagues?

 

I have $500 to spend on my headphone setup, so just wondering if I should upgrade my amp or DAC (HRT MSII). For the DAC, I'll probably make a decision after I spend sometime comparing between the HRT MSII, DragonFly and Rega DAC I have at home to see if different DACs do make a difference for the HD650.

post #9415 of 18278

IMO opinion always upgrade in this order: hp>amp>dac. So I wouldn't worry too much about the dac unless you are having jitter or playback issues. I have owned several of the LD amps and the lyr is much better to my ears. I have not owned any of the others that you mention although I hear that the Woo stuff is very nice. The lyr has curbed my appetite to get newer amps. It's just a beast of a pairing. 

 

gL!!

post #9416 of 18278

Thanks MattTCG. Might have to get myself to a Schiit dealer here in Oz to listen to the Lyr.

 

At the moment, I'm comparing the 3 DACs I have, DragonFly, HRT MSII, and Rega DAC. And on the Rega DAC, my headphone setup has not sounded better. The HD650 do indeed scale up depending on the source. Unfortunately, the Rega DAC can't stay with the headphone setup as it is needed in the main system.

It is a sweet gesture for sure, but not everybody has $500 to spend on a whim like that. Especially this close to the holidays.
