Meier Concerto is very good with the T1.

I have looked at the Auditor, the price seems to be quite reasonable for the performance.

 

Does it work well with lower impedance cans like DX1000 or SA5000?

Not so well frown.gif , it's really aimed at high impedance cans .

I see, I have to look elsewhere then.

Any other solid state amps that perform on a similar level with T1s?

 

My M^3 amps also do a credible job but they don't have the resolution of the GS-1, so they are mostly unused.

Makes me even more excited to try some orthos.

 

This afternoon after work, I plan on trying the T1's with my PS Audio GCHA; I didn't have a chance to do that last night.  The GCHA has a fairly polite and rolled off sound, plus its design may just match better with the T1's.  I'll report back later today on that.

I will be keeping my eye on the FS forum looking for a GS-1, but as I noted earlier, they are very dificult to get with the EU voltage.

No go.  The sibilance I can hear is subdued just barely a tad with the PS Audio GCHA, but it's also a warm amp.  I've always been very sensitive to any sibilance, and I think for whatever reason, the way the T1's present the sound just doesn't sit right with my ears.  I can't deny that every other aspect of these headphones is fantastic.  Detail retrieval is spectacular, and the midrange is incredible.  I am slowly learning to "accept" the sibilance I can hear, but I doubt that these will remain a final contendor for me after I've demoed other headphones.  Just to be clear, not every recording I listen to exhibits the sibilance; however,  it seems that the T1's to my ears accentuate *any* potential for sibilance in a recording.  I also tried the DT990s in the past, and those almost made my ears bleed.

 

I have a full 2 weeks to demo these, so I'm going to stick with them and see how they turn out for me.

My head amp is Burson HA-160.  Anyone here use / heard the T1 with this amp?

 

I'm planning to upgrade my cans and my two choices are the T1 or Audez'e LCD-2 Rev. 2

Source is mainly vinyl playback and I listen to rock, pop and electronica.

I generally like detailed highs and solid, tight bass which isn't boomy.

Can you share with us the songs that you are experiencing sibilance? That will allow us to test with our setup and report our experience.

One that I remember hearing a lot in was Ben Harper - Diamonds on the Inside.

 

Actually, I've been listening to some more well recorded things, even classic rock such as some Zeppelin, and I'm gradually adjusting to the sound.  Either that, or these demo cans just weren't burned in.  The level of detail with these headphones is astounding.  Almost doesn't seem real.

 

Edit: One more song: John Mayer - Waiting on the World to Change.  Only a very slight sibilance tendency here, and a lot of the other tracks on the album.  Not sure if it's the way his voice is, or was recorded.  Didn't notice this on the HD650s, but we all know the HD650s pleasantly mask certain imperfections.

Hi,

 

I tried both tracks you supplied and I didn't get any sibilance at all on my T1's. I tried the songs on my T5p and T70 as well but didn't hear anything.

Interesting.  Well as I said, either my ears could be getting used to the sound or the T1's were in need of burn in.  Either way, I'm starting to find it very hard to put these things down, even when I should be in bed.  To me, that's the ultimate sign.

A few people tried T1s with Burson amps and no one reported anything good. LCD-2 on the other hand, seems to have a good synergy with Burson.

Hi,

 

I thought the T1 sounded good on the HA-160. It was a really lively sound.
