Yes I realize that, I just wanted to clarify the lossless portion of the discussion thinking it would be helpful for others to know you still get it over optical when downmixed into 2 channels. Sorry if that was OT.

Do u find the velor pads sounding too lean/bright...

and the pleather/leather pads too boomy/ hallish?

 

Try this... foam/pleather experiment :P

http://www.amazon.com/HiFiMan-Leather-Earpads-Series-Headphones/dp/B006695A8G/ref=cm_cr_pr_pb_i

 

This is a HE-6 pleatherpad with some doublesidedtape-windowfoam stuck towards the back part of the ear.

The sound i am hearing is a full-bodied sound without the boominess...

a tinge of hallish ambience, sense of depth, on the NICE side.

Ran thru jazz / pop / classicals...

v pleased with the results.

Give it a shot if u have a pair of pleather pads lying around :)

 

========

 

Ray Charles / Diana Ross / MJ all sounded more intimate...mmmmmm bass punch soooo tight n full...arrrghhhh

 

========

 

Close my eyes, and felt i am watching Schindler's List , Gladiators, Avatar,

that sense of BIG body of sound in a theatre 

 

========

 

U can stop thinking of selling your T1. :P

Tomorrow I shall be half-way to the End Game: My new T1 cans arrive, along with my interim Amp. "Half way", as I decided to punt and get a Vali to keep me going in a half-decent way, until I could decide on a better amp to compliment the T1s.

 

I am considering the WA7 or the Valhalla. I already have a NAD D1050 DAC, but am open to either an integrated system a la the WA7 or a different DAC to go with a new amp.

 

The D1050 does have a decent headphone amp in it, but it seems to only play well with low impedance headphones, hence the Vali (well, also to dip my toes in the tube sound). 

 

So: I am looking for good suggestions for the amp to take me the rest of the way to the end game. Preferably under $1,000,-

What are ones thoughts on the T1 + Burson Conductor?

 

How does it compare to a T1 + A1?

I love my V200.  Fits your price range, is fantastic with the T1.  Loads of power.

+1  the V200 is one of the SS amps that pairs well with the T1.

I've been doing head to head comparison of multiple HP's (HD595/HD650/HD800/HE400) with The Beatles Sgt. Pepper on high res 24/44>OPPO BDP-105>Meier Daccord>Meier Corda Classic.

No other HP above compared with the T1's ability to really bring out McCartney's bass guitar.  If there ever was a question about why he shows up on other musicians top ten lists for bass playing this album and the T1 brings it all to life.  

I have never had a single regret about buying these HP's.

The T1 with my present complement of tubes in the LF339 has made me a believer that it DOES belong in the top echelon of HPs. Dare I say that: the T1 reproduces string timbre more convincingly than the HD-800. For now, I need to know the T1 longer and am waiting on a gadget that will allow me to run them from a couple of my speaker amps.

T1 (and now the HE-6) are great at bringing out guitars, i think they are better rock headphones than grados btw. (and i am a huge fan of the RS1i).

The most amazing part was that he sang those beautiful melodies while playing those complex baselines. If you like Rock, check out Muse on the T1's. Matthew Bellamy belts out some haunting vocal leads while playing intricate guitar parts. A true genius.

+1 Stunning combo

I tried the LCD-2s today with the Bottlehead Mainline. They sounded very good, but the T1s retained their place as my all time favourite headphone to date... I think my wallet has almost stopped quivering from the fear of the audition!
