I don't think you're wrong...I completely agree with you Alex.

Have had a few days with the Concerto, not bad at all. The D7000 now present more realism, 3D soundstage and better seperation. Through the HDAV1.3 soundcard they sounded very High Def, now with the Concerto they sound very real, more like your not wearing headphones.

 

This was something I noticed adding an amp did to my old speaker set up, more reaslism.

Do you think this amp would work well with 5 ohm headphones...

Well, that's a better question for Jan, but given the output impedance of the Concerto is 0.1 ohm, seems that it should be OK.

Missing a 0 and mean LCD-2 50 ohm maybe?  Being an amp its current and voltage limited, for 5 ohm you'll obviously hit the current wall pretty early.  Be an absolute cap of 1250mW into 5ohm, 3380mW into 50ohm.

Thank you.. I need a amp on par or better then my GP V9.. Cause I'm reduced to using 2 headphones with it, & I hate how the ohm adapters influence the sound.. Might email DR Meir also...

So my wife killed my idea of my bedside rig...apparently it did not match our decor . But I did find that I liked the contrast of SS vs. Tube amp very much.

 

So my bedside Headroom Micro Amp is now for sale and I expect my new (well Solude's) Concerto this week. As his is just down the 401 in Ottawa (and if Canada Post doesn't screw up...crossing my fingers), I should have it by mid week.

 

I see that it pairs very nicely with the T1s and D7000s, but what about the HD800s?

After several listening sessions and A/B comparisons I have sold my T1 and I am soon buying HD800 to be played from the Concerto. Both of them are playing greatly from the Concerto - the HD800 just sounded 10% better to me. So having heard the HD800 only on a limited couple of other amplifiers in the same price-range I can only say that Concerto/HD800 is not a bad combination at all and it will be my future main rig.

Cool...thanks for the confirmation. Makes me feel really good that the Concerto will work well with my T1/D7000 and HD800.

 

With regards to the T1 vs. HD800, I felt the opposite, but between the two, I believe it's more about personal preferences and the type of music you listen to (T1s are great with rock/metal while the HD800s excel with classical and jazz). Both are certainly great headphones!

Peter I will be interested in your feedback on the Concerto + HD800 - I would think it would be a good pairing.

I will definitely post my thoughts will all of my headphones and their respective pairing with the Concerto.

 

I hate to ask...but how does it pair with the LCD-2?

Very well!  The Concerto did really very well with the LCD-2, I feel.  Quite enjoyable combo.
