post #1861 of 1869

Guys something I would recommend is that you pair a W1000x with a Hifiman DAP, they are very warm analog sounding players that pair nice with my W1000x 

 

as far as tubes go, they tend to be noisy so finding one with a very black back ground would be most ideal 

 

I'll mention the Vali sounded good with the W1000x, but it was noisy. An there were times that I preffered my Solid State Amp to the Vali depending on the genre :/ 

 

I still think though a Warm Dac maybe even a Tube Dac might work nice with a clean solid state

May be I'm wrong but I always believed that a dac should be as neutral as possible in case you want to change the headphones
I agree a tube amp is a good option to tune the sound to your liking and get the best matching

Yea your right that it should b but for around $200 you can get the Aune T1, which is a very popular Tube Dac/Amp here, which I would imagine would pair nicely with the W1000x

My W1000X was doing good even without an amp, I was using a musical fidelity v3 and loved the pairing

The price is now very interesting for such nice cans

yea it's been up and down for a while now, it's interesting  I guess, as the price hasn't changed to to much in the last few years 

 

You can still find the fully modded ones for around $450 ish

I was around 750 $ before rolleyes.gif at least in Europe

You could also go the PriceJapan route as I did. Almost half the price of UK RRP. Might be a different proposition for US prices however.

Honestly, I think the Orignal W1000 and the W1000X are the prettiest cans, the W1000Z [btw there is a new model out :[ ) are not the greatest looking wood backs, though I'm not a huge fan of the Grain of Teak Wood
