Nope! (take a closer look)

 

Although not a bad guess considering it's me after all rolleyes.gif The cups are too small for a modern Fostex driver, but a vintage Fostex or Yamaha might work, hmm...

It says 600ohm's on the HD25 decal. Otherwise out of guess.

post #13893 of 17843

Well, more than just the decal. I swapped out the regular drivers for some 600 ohm heavies (from the kinda rare HD25-13-ii).

One of my systems, this combo sounds amazing, smooths the DT990 600 ohm out.  Not seen is a pair of Kimber Kable Hero interconnects and a WattBox line conditioner

Not to take away from this thread, but I think Headphones need some more respect on reddit, so I made a subreddit for posting pics of your headphones, I want to grow it as a great community here just like here on headfi, so please go check it out, subscribe, and post your pics, if you dotn want to hurt headfi ( neither do i) you can submit links to your headfi picture on the forumns. So yeah, thanks and lets create something nice + looking for moderators.... www.reddit.com/r/shareyourheadphones

Ah, yes. The magical review and opinion with no direct experience.
NOT particularly useful.

Very nice. Considered the Valhalla myself. What does it do for the Beyerdynamic headphone?

It's really the NAD SACD that seems to have tamed the DT990 as far as I can tell, that or I broke them in enough or a just got used to the sonic signature....probably a combination of all 3! It sounds REALLY nice now!  NAD components lean more to the darker side in general.

 

The Valhalla wants to see a 300 - 600 ohm impedance to sound it's best, these Beyers are 600 ohm and should have been a great match for the amp, but I was unhappy with the sound at first, new amp, newish headphones, etc...

 

Very happy now, played some stuff last night that I knew had a bright treble on it and it was great!

It makes them look very good in a picture together.

I was about to get rid of them and now they sound fantastic in this particular setup,  I am keeping them! I think these headphones are tough to get a good system match with, but when you do it is something special.....

Sounds similar to the infamous AKG Love/Hate relationships.

Review...? Hardly. Also, you're asking for a review on a product that basically doesn't exist yet. You can't even pre-order the damn thing.

The best you can hope for are meet impressions which are 'grain of salt' tier in the first place.

There's not a single bit of info that's 'partiularly useful' about this amp. But you're welcome to take the 15k plunge when you can to let us all know.

I used the word GUESS for a reason. rolleyes.gif

McIntosh D100 with AKG K340 and Koss ESP950 (and the TakeT H2+ in the background).

What's the deal with this... haven't heard much about it yet.  Is Jude doing a review or something? L3000.gif (please say yes)

ZDSE, GS-X mk2 with a bunch of headphones.  Sold all of my DAC's because I like the OPPO so much.  I am planning on building a Buffalo DAC now that I have the GS-X, just for the experience.  Also emotiva power amps and my other favorite accidental finds - the Sierra Acoustics Tower speakers with RAAL.  I've had about 5 sets of speakers in the 4 years but I'm pretty sure I'll have these for the next decade.
