Good point, assuming a DAC1 or something with both balanced and unbalanced outputs, so that we talk only about the beta22.

grace design 902 (i have a 904). If you.ve heard one and compared, you already know that this is it.

that sounds basically like my gilmore v2-se.

 

and i'll second an earlier poster's recommendation of a top of the line headroom amp. headroom amps tend to do very well with sennheisers. i've heard their top shelf amps as parts of terrific sounding systems that have powered a number of cans including hd800s. the buda can run from either a single ended or balanced source and run your cans single ended or balanced. the big senns sound even better balanced.
