Thank you for all your comments. This thread is far from dead I assure you. The initial topic will be updated with my (long) impressions. Please subscribe to the thread if you happen to care for what I may have to say about it.
For now I will just say that it does take time to burn in and more importantly, had I commented on it on the first couple of days I would have been very, very unfair. Currently at 100hrs it has loosened up quite a LOT and gained extra confidence.

Another thing I will advance is that this is a big test for the HD-600 as this is probably the end of the line for them as the Rudistor takes everything that can be had from them...

...in single ended mode of course, please let's not go off-topic about balancing the Senn's, I debated with that for a long time and decided it would only make sense if these were my headphones for the long term and they're not.

Stay tuned.

Happy New Year

I will be the judge of that.

There's a Raptor and an MG Head OTL sitting next to the Rudistor right now. My Senn's have always been amped by tubes for the past 5 years.

I thought I'd do the write up this weekend and do some critical (and not so critical) listening but got a cold and can't hear right so the review is postponed... but will come!

burn-in is officially over at 200+hrs and sounding great (from what I can remember before the cold )

cheers

Why is balance off-topic?

I dont understand why the balance question is off-topic. The difference between the cost of the NX-33 and RPX-33 is only 200 Euros (for that amount you could get balanced cables). Sovkiller in other threads [Rudi Rules] has made it clear that the Senns benefit seriously from the balanced Rudistor amps. Since the dual-mono and balanced Rudistors are so close in cost, as a potential buyer, I'd like to hear about the comparative strength of each.

Although you have indicated that you yourself have no interest in comparing these, others may; a comparison would, I think, be very on-topic. I do not think it would dilute the thread but enrich it.

I am, of course, interested in what you will be saying about the RPX-33 and the Senns, since the latter are keepers for me.

If the senns are keepers for you, just go balanced, the balanced topology help them a lot to overcome their shortcommings....Just my two cents...

Sorry all for the delay in the review but it will come, be sure. And more pics too.

I have not said I have no interest in comparing (send me one and I will).

Dilute the thread? Discussions are really only worthwhile when people have listened to it. Thousands of posts exist on that topic but very few people have actually compared balanced vs SE, and fewer still had some proper listening time. If someone has experience please post it but there are so many threads out there... I know because I searched.

What I meant is that FOR ME that topic would only be relevant IF I was going to keep the Senn's in the long run, but I won't, I'll probably get some JVC DX1000. For you, if you really want to keep them then yes, the NX-33 is a very good option and it's probably what I would have bought.

Sorry if I sound negative but after a few years in head-fi I learned that 'discussing' stuff is of no real value to you, only reports of people who did extensive listening and who compared side by side various gear. Everything else is just chit-chat.

Is balanced NX33 better for your Senn's that a dualmono setup in a high-end RPX33 amp? I have 2 of these 3 components and I cannot tell you! Sure I can speculate, but is it of any use to you?

So I personally will not feed this discussion, but if someone has hands-on experience with the 3 components, feel free to share.

cheers

How does it sound with the AKG's and your Ety ER4P? How would you compare it to your RSA's and Headsix?

And 3 months later we are still waiting for the review .

Absolutely right. Been waiting for a probable purchase of some JVC DX1000 as that pair makes much more sense than pairing it with HD-600's.

But it's not forgotten and will come,
again, sorry for the delay but other stuff has got in the way also...

cheers

After about 3 weeks of running in DX1000, RPX-33 certainly well match to it.

applevalleyjoe - I am getting very good deep bass using RPX33 with 701.

Also recommend power cord upgraded with this amp, just something decent, doesn't need to be expensive, just thicker than the thin stock cable, OFC, shielded etc. Also do use quality IEC and AC plug with it.
