I've had the DACmini now for over a year and I love it and have no reason to upgrade any of my gear or any need. However, now I'm thinking of getting the HD 800 and using the DACmini to drive them. I drive other headphones I have with the DACmini, and they all sound great. Would the DACmini be able to drive the HD 800 to their fullest? If not, I was thinking of getting the USB option of the Violectric HPA V200 headphone amp. However, it costs quite a lot and would make me have to wait for the HD 800 probably another year.
So basically, can the DACmini be able to drive the Senn HD 800 to their fullest or somewhat close to their fullest?
I have not tested the HD-800 with DACmini but I do not think HD-800 is difficult as a load. But some say it has 'difficult' sound signature (must be paired with warm gear). DACmini is on the warm side of neutral.
