I just got these suckers today, but haven't opened them (for the sake of possibly returning and getting the 7520's). I currently don't have any files/amps/dacs to make these babies shine, but I will soon. For quick reference since I haven't caught up on the thread yet, what amp/dac combos are recommended for these phones? I'm thinking of going bifrost/asgard presently since Burson is know for being "bright". I take bright as having more detail/clarity, but I could be wrong in that you guys would take it for sibilant.
i would think bright means its tilted to the treble side, i dont think it necessarily means more detail/clarity or sibilant/harsh. for example, i have a pair of radio earbuds and compared it with my beyerdynamic dt990, the dt990 has clearer mid (of course...) but the radio earbuds were brighter on the mid (i was listening solely on the mid but do notice other differences in other frequency...).
