Damn. I had, for some reason, thought of ordering 6922 (gold) version. Then I asked from Indeed what tube I should choose, and they suggested 6N11. And now you tell that 6N23P would propably be the best one :)
During last few weeks I have learned that my receiver does not output digitally imported sound to analog outputs -> I need a DAC. I have also learned that Denon uses (at least AVR-1909 model) it's "main amp" for headphone output also, there are just some resistors in between.. So sound should be quite ok.. I don't know what this site has done to me, since I'm still thinking of ordering DAC + amp that cost more than my headphones, just to make a tiny little adjustment to the sound, that, for all I know, might be so little I'm not going to even hear it :D
(The question I send to Indeed: I have Sennheiser HD 598 headphones. I love their WIDE soundstage and clarity, but bottom end and overall warmth are not so exellent. They are a little too bright to my taste. I'm going to order G2 amp, if it'd improve their sound more to my liking. What tube you would recommend for me: 6922, 6N23P or 6N11?)
