It's a lovely amp.

I was slightly worried it might not pair very well with the HD800s but I have 0 regrets and love the sound.

It could be the pairing with the M-DAC as well but still, it is not the warmest sound but that's something I precisely did not want. Otherwise, I would have gone with something like the WA2.

Excellent. Think I even prefer it to LCD-2 and Conductor. Took a while to get used to the headphones' signature as they sounded recessed in the mids at first but that is definitely not the case now.

I'm not sure they need a Burson Conductor fed by an Audiophilleo 2 to sound good though. They'd probably sound fantastic out of a Schiit Asgard and a budget USB DAC.

Some really nice setups on here, which are all rendering me jealous :P.

 

Currently rebuilding my audiogear from almost-scratch, but I'm enjoying the journey again. Not shown in the picture is a DT770 pro80 and a uDAC2 which are being loaned to a friend, and a HD668b and a 242HD are packed away for now. Out of shot are also some Tannoy 609 speakers, but they're only connected sometimes because I can't really enjoy them at the levels that put a smile on my face.

 

Sorry for the B&W photo, but my camera is all sorts of crap and blurred some things, so I muted the colours to hopefully clear some things up.

The B&W makes it look professional, or something.  I think I might take a couple B&W shots.

Yeah. A lot of the right of my photo had blurring, which doesn't show as much when I mute the colours. I find that going B&W -- and sometimes sharpening if things get real bad -- can save what otherwise can be terrible photos from my current camera :P. I know, I should probably reinvest in a new one, but I just don't snap shots regularly enough to justify the expense. Plus, I might be getting the ATH-ES10 soon so...my wallet has that to look forward to :S.

Like the Technics. I have that SU-V3 and it makes a stellar headphone amp. It's one of may favorites to use with the HD800's. Beating a lot of mid price headphone amps that I've owned.

Fantastic to hear that the SU-V3 couples up with the HD800s well, because at some distant point in the future I intend to get those headphones. I've grown up with the SU-V3 for most my life, not really paying attention to it, especially as a headphone amp -- mostly my dad used to use it with the Tannoy 609s to play his classical music and I'd be outside in the garden as a kid, pretending to be a ninja turtle.

 

I claimed the Technics as my own when I returned from some travelling and had to start rebuilding my audiogear. I never knew these older stereo amps could be so ''stellar'', as you nicely put it, for headphones. I need to learn how to do maintanence on the SU-V3 though, as I do worry sometimes since the amp is from the late 80s. I'm thankful that mine is in pretty neat shape though. I'm thinking of looking further into old and new stereo amps for the future, so if you, or anyone else has any reccomendations, then I'd be all ears. I suppose there are threads on the forum that I need to get to already :P.

Has anyone ever used an Onkyo R1 speakers amplifier to drive the Hd800?

I found this gathering dust.

Yep - they're S520's - Excellent sound for what they cost here in Aus (~AUD$300 new)

Got mine DX50 a few days ago, now listening it's as a source to my audio rig at work (sorry for very poor photo quality, did it with HTC HD2):

Ah, those HD2-quality shots give me great nostalgia :') Why are we continually trying to make phone cameras better when all you need is that beautiful, grainy, washed-out, color-inaccurate quality? :P Awesome rig by the way :D Dat TH600
