Audinst HUD MX1 w/ K702?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Yes, another one of those threads.

Anyways, will this:

Audinst HUD-mx1 Hi-Fi USB Audio DAC - eBay (item 170473708156 end time May-15-10 20:55:52 PDT)

DAC/AMP drive the K702's? I'm considering saving up for those two, but I don't know if the Audinst will drive the K702. I need a DAC, as the soundcard in the computer I'm using causes hissing but don't have enough money for a DAC and amp separately.

Should I bother getting the K702's or should I get something easier to drive for around the same price?

Nevermind, found the answer after some more researching

Just in case you need it: the K701/2 is not easy to amp right, relatively low impedance or not. Denon Dx000, Sennheiser HD5x5, and Audio Technicas in general aren't as picky.

It would be nice to hear your take on the research you've done....

 

FWIW, I've got both and the MX1 drives my K702's adequately.

It will push them to a SPL of ~100dB. Nice highs, so-so lows.

Decent soundstage & clarity. Could use more headroom though.

The Audinst also is a good travel DAC/amp.

Very small and lightweight, hooks up to my laptop (power and data via USB)

it cranks the AKG's, whereas the the phone jack on the laptop is almost worthless.
