I have only run Denon D2000s out of the amp and it is a fine marriage. Tonight I will add 701s, Ultrasone 2500s and Sennheiser 650s to the mix and let you know. Justin posted that the Pico handles them quite well.
Since opinions are slim on the amp section right now I'll be sure to give some brief initial impressions when I get mine (hopefully tomorrow... Monday - latest).
IMO one of the most important things for us to discuss is how the synergy changes from one headphone to the next. Most amps do have a certain character footprint that they carry with them but synergy can be largely impacted depending on the cans. I would put the Lisa up against any sub $1000 amp with confidence that it could hold its own but with the UE-11 I found that there was a certain synergy that was lacking (although others with this combo do not agree).
I'll try the Pico with my UE-11, ES2 and PS-1 and try and report on the differences. I'll also compare to my Hornet and try and do some memory based comparos to the Lisa, but I'd also like to hear some in depth impressions from Pico owners on the amp section.
