Many thanks

 

Depends on what your feeling are towards to HD800.

 

If you like then but feel they have faults ( the most common ones are lacking bass, bright or thin sounding) then a tube amp that will help in those areas would be my recommendation.

 

If you don't hear the faults mentioned above and want to keep the stengths of the HD800 of great speed, detail and bass control (amonst others) then SS would work well.

 

The HD800's require and need a good amp but that does not have to mean expensive.

All IMO of course.

Thanks for the advice.

HiFiGuy528-Nice setup! :)

I feel the HD800 may sound with too much "sss", I don't know what's the proper word to describe it. It is probably caused by too much treble.

I think for my taste it needs to be smoothed

That's exactly what a tube amp will help with... with the right tubes, of course.

Well, ****. One of my Telefunkens died on the way to university, so I'll have to replace that. In the mean time, it's back to the stocks.... :(

Hahahaha, yep. Unfortunately, as a student, that's a pretty big hit. Oh well, a new one is on the way, should be here next week.

I'm burning in a pair of Audio Note Quest Silver mono 300B amps in my speaker setup (only using the stock Psvane 300Bs for now), but have the SERP 300bs in my Manley pre/headphone amp and the Takatsuki 300Bs waiting to roll into the Quest Silvers--but really like what I've read about the Elrog 300Bs sound.

Will update when I get words back, so far it has been smooth. I would really like the warranty to be at least a year, 6 months us a bit too short when you take tube rolling into consideration. Those with elrogs, I recommend using them as much as possible during the warranty period.

On other notes, score for myself a pair of reissue we300b.. Will compare them to elrogs when I get my replacement

Had an issue which was handled very quickly by the Distributor, up to 150 hours on my new set now, Matt and I are both finding the best paring is with the Tak 274B. Also burning a new pair Takatsuki's (unfortunate mishap) seems I am stuck in burn in hell forever.

Hey guys have a quick question for you; I have owned my WA6-SE for the past few months now but lately I've been hearing some quite harsh peaking through my T1's, it seems to start after the 2nd or 3rd hour of the amp being on and once it's there I can not get it to go away. I'm not sure exactly, but could it be picking up some interference from things around it? All my gear is setup on the same table, so I'm thinking it is either that or microphonics interfering with the signal. 

Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated! :p

Hey guys, I'm interested in the WA7 right now (not strongly, thanks to its extremely high price down under), but would like to clear up a few queries:

 

1. Besides RCA, are there other analog inputs (ie. 3.5mm?)

2. The manual says the USB DAC requires Windows drivers, but doesn't mention for other stuff like Android. If my phone supports USB audio through OTG, would it work with the WA7?

 

Thanks!

Hi guys, pardon for disturbing the thread and posting what's probably been a very annoying question but I need HELLLPPPP!!!

I just recently invested in a Cavalli Carbon and have started planning out my final desktop rig. Besides the Carbon I also have a WA6 which I rather like a lot. Here's the problem, my current DAC is a CLAS-db and according to well versed ears who have heard the pairing it won't cut the mustard when it's paired with the Carbon. It's getting by with the WA6 but I'm not to happy with that pairing either. Can anyone here maybe point me towards a good DAC that could do double duty with both the amps I've mentioned? I'd prefer something that had both a single end and balanced out but if the DAC is highly regarded I could live with just single end unbalanced out. My budget would be between 750 to a 1000. Maybe slightly more but I'd have to really be convinced it's worth it to shell out much more then a 1000.
