AMB Gamma2 DAC sound impressions? - Page 8

The AD8656 has more output current so it's better suited for driving headphones. I'm going to guess that the high impedance coupled with the low output current are the cause. I listened to my HD800 directly from my Gamma2 and I agree, sounds surprisingly decent given it's straight out from a DAC.

Well , it seems this thread needs a resurrection...

 

I will have soon a M^3 to power up my DT 880/600Ω, and wondering if this Gamma 2 will be a nice companion..

Any thoughts you might share?

 

Thanks!

I think it would be a good match :)

I'm in the reverse situation. Currently have the Gamma2 and am working up to an M^3. If my Gamma2 + Mini^3 is any indication, it will be amazing.

I'm working on a CKKIII and a M^3 that'll be finished.....soon-ish. I think it'll be a very good match :)

I used to have the y2 + M^3/Sigma-11 combo. I've since sold the M^3, but sometimes regret doing so. It was an excellent pairing. I never tried the DT880 through that setup though, only the cans listed in my profile.

I'd love to hear impressions of the gamma2 with an m^3.  I was considering trying building it as my first real DIY project. 

 

The gamma2 has been excellent so far.  So much clarity across the spectrum, and spaciousness compared to my entry level udac.  Really happy with it so far.

I don't subscribe to some magical synergy between various components, so take from this what you will......

 

The Gamma2 is a great DAC. The M3 is a great amp. Putting them together is not going to make either one or both suddenly seem awful.

This is also my general take on it as well.

As someone who has owned both the Gamma2 and M^3 at the same time, it is indeed a very nice combo.  Did not try the DT880s on it though.

how much $$$ does the MisterX y2 go for?

You can always PM him, shaggy.

Just wanted to quickly update the thread. I have a Buffalo 32s now ($1500 in parts) and you'd be surprised at how close the y2 is. This DAC is a huge bargain at its asking price.
