Oh yep, I have. I find that the HD700 has a really weird sound signature.

On my first listen, I thought the sound was brilliant, like it had got all the rights of the Sennheiser brand and put it into one package but the longer I listened the more I disliked the sound. It was like a jack of all trades, master of none. It really didn't benefit from that warm tubey Woo sound we've come to expect. For example, I find the HD 650 to really complement well with the WA6 and similarly providing a mellow warmness to the HD 800 (assuming you like that sound) unfortunately with the HD 700, I feel the tubey Woo amp sound clashes with the sound signature of the HD 700. You are far better of pairing it with an SS amp such as the auditor of phonitor. Hope that helps. :)

I listened to the HD700 with a Bryston amp. Not bad for non-accoustic music. Not at the top of my list though.

It's two cases connected with an umbilical - Left/right is up the individual user.  smile_phones.gif

 

not on mine, the cable is too small and its positioned at one corner of the amp, it has to left/right or else the cable isn't long enough. unless of course he purchased a longer umbilical cable to connect them.

the amp,

 

 

typo there lol


I'm confused too.  You are saying let the amp warm up before plugging in the 'phones, right?  Not the tubes.

No, no, no...you need to do some jumping jacks or go for a quick jog before listening to your headphones...YOU need to be warmed up, not your amp.


Sorry, I couldn't help it.

also noticed that your WA6-SE is switched around compared to the older version, guess Jack changed the amps appearance. ( the old WA6-SE had the power supply/amp switched around, as you can tell in other WA6-SE pictures)

 

The switch was done by me :) ...I asked Jack to extend the umbilical cable few inches from the stock length.  The reason, the Bifrost's output RCAs are on the right (looking from front) and I want to minimize the interconnects' length (I diy ones myself, encountered another problem in doing so but that is another story).  Hence, the amp portion is on the right.  Besides, per my setup, the volume button is closer to reach.

Has anyone heard the Psvane 274 B rectifier in the context of a WA22.. And how it compares to the EML 5u4g and Sophia Princess... I'm running Audeze LCD-2's, and Moon Audio Black Dragon cable coming soon:)

I bet that is one enjoyable rig on which to listen for hours! How does the LCD-2 compare with the T90 to your ears?
