Depends which amp you use....

post #5283 of 10678
Do you have any you can recommend that is in the same price range as the E10?
post #5284 of 10678

objective 2 is the only amp in that price range

 

no dac in it though

post #5285 of 10678

I would highly recommend you get an Objective 2. Makes the T50RP sing.

The thing is that I have a main setup: Burson HA-160DS + K701.

The new setup I was hoping not to use so much money on that why I bought the niceprice Fostex and hopefully a amp/dac that would fit the T50RP.

you have any power amps sitting around? want to do it on the cheap way and feed it endless amounts of power you can build a cheap DIY speaker to headphone out box from your very own radioshack. they still sell project boxes and it will have all the parts you need there. i always liked using speaker outputs for driving headphones as well. don't need to worry about anything except blowing the headphones and your ears. power is no problem though.

why dont you use the burson?

 

btw, the T50rp rivaled the K701 for me.

There's been a SOHAII in the F/S forum for ages.  Would be an excellent amp, it's a great price for what you get.

This thread makes me want to buy some t50rp's and mod the crap out of them. biggrin.gif
post #5291 of 10678

I'd just like to third the O2+T50RP pairing.  It's absolutely wonderful.

post #5292 of 10678

The Burson is in my computer room. I need a small setup for the livingroom, so justlike a portable amp/dac would do. 

 

Yeah, i'm looking forward to test the T50rp against the K701 when the mod is done!

post #5293 of 10678

You should have a bigger setup in your living room than in your computer room. That's just common sense. The T50RP is very very good with the Cary SLI-80. It is also way bigger than the Burson. Very unportable and dac-less. Will suit you fine k701smile.gif

The Paradox & CottonDryers arrived today..

 

I had to get reacquainted with the "ortho sound" since it's been quite a while since I've listened to the T50RP.  I want to thank LFF for his fantastic work.. the certificate of authenticity & FAQ included was a really nice touch.

 

I'll post some in-depth impressions later on tonight since I haven't had a chance to dig in with them.  Regarding the two flavors, the CottonDryers sound like a slightly warmer version of the monumentally neutral Paradox (w/ 003 pads).  The Paradox lays it all out like it is.. the CottonDryers (w/ the O2 pads) bring that thumping bass.  It's very interesting how the CottonDryers are tuned.. there's some serious bass thump.. it doesn't creep into the midrange whatsoever though.. the warmth is very well articulated.. the CD is smoother (and more colored) sounding than the Paradox.

 

LFF mentioned he took both pairs to a meet and most everyone loved the Paradox.. and for the few who didn't, they loved the CottonDryers.  What we have here are two incredibly complimentary cans.. one for people seeking ultimate neutrality and another for those after a slightly colored, bassier sound with a very articulate warmth.

 

Initial sound impressions?

 

I'm thoroughly blown away by both flavors.
