Traitor, your shameful post will be displayed here for all posterity!

Auf Wiedersehen, enjoy your Veil!

Heh. I've actually gone the opposite way. I'm getting rid of my HD650 and am balancing my W5000.

I am enjoying my beautiful pair - W5000 and HA5000
Every day I can hear amazing Maria Callas's voice. WOW.

I pair the W5000 with the MPX3 Slam SE, and it sound excellent

I will do the same thing someday, as soon as I get the just the right amp!

How do you think that the Audio-gd Compass would drive the W5000 ?

I sold my Raptor, and now listen to balanced HD800 and newly balanced W5000 via an Apache amplifier.

Between the balancing, new amp and new DAC, the W5000 are very exciting cans now.

i use onkyo SE-200PCi LTD as DAC and Luxman P200 as amp to drive my ATH-W5000.

I now also have Yamamoto HA02 to drive it.....awsome match.

Recommendation for portable amp for w5000? I do have a diff thread going but think this is the perfect place to ask this question. Maybe it just won't work well?

May try a Leckerton UHA-4, not sure what the w5k will sound like, but only 1 way to find out.
post #179 of 182
W5000's arrive tomorrow. Bought an RSA P51 Mustang and a Redwine iMod today. (80GB G5) Can't wait to see what it all sounds like. Lining up my flacs for Rockbox and getting my ears ready.

W5000 sounded really nice with the p51, unfortunately the phones creaked when I moved my jaw or head slightly. Could not get it to stop so exchanging for the w1000's. I have read others who experienced this issue...bummer. Really liked them, hope to like the w1000.
