post #16291 of 19172

didn't listen to the v181, from reviews seems that the v200 is a step up from it, but from the specs it seems it could have better channel separation cos of balanced operation, however for orthos (especially he-6) and hd800 the v200 should be the way to go

 

i'm waiting for the he-6 to arrive, i had beyer t1, lcd2 and now lcd3 hd800 and hd650, with the v800 v200 all the cans just bring their true nature and potential, every one of them is so different and yet all are so enjoyable, even the lcd2 and 3 are totally different, it really dissect every headphone, really transparent combo

 

after buying the he-6 i read this about the v800 v200 pairing, now i'm even more excited

Hi MIke!

Interesting to see you write that "....the V800/V200 pairing proves to be the best HE-6 set up I’ve heard to date.."

What other (good) amps have you heard the HE-6 with?

So, you then find the V200 powerful enough, I guess. What is it with V200 that makes it so good?

If you don't use it with balanced interconnects from the V800, the sound is not quite there. The magic really happens when you're pairing with the V800 over balanced.
Smooth, full bodied mids and bass. Superb vocals. No other pairing like it for the Hifimans.

with the hd800 i suspect it could be the same story as with the he-6, at least in terms of body and a balanced presentation, the lcd3 (got it recently) in this aspect is on a whole new level, i'm overdosing with emotional goosebumps

 

will report when i get the he-6, i'm just concerned how to make it fit in my avatar shot :confused:

Haha thats a GOOD problem you are facing :P. too bad the v200 isn't balanced... Ill wait for the v282 which i am assuming will be closer/better to the v200. My hifimans will be coming balanced and wanted to stick to that.

lol, I've seen you go from the HD650 to HD700 to HE500 and now the HD800 :)

 

Are the HD800 worth the money? Those might be my end game headphones one day in the far far future lol

post #16294 of 19172

Yup, you forgot the HE400, HD600 & HD25 that I've had and the Momentums I currently also own. :blink:

And yes, the HD800 are really worth it. I'm pretty sure that they're my end game so it's a matter of getting the supporting orchestration right. Maybe a complementary set of phones but at this point, I really don't fee the need. It's been a fun journey!

For this particular desk, I decided to go more compact, to free up space for other things. Being able to stack the KEF X300A Wireless speakers, Meridian Prime DAC/amp (and Meridian Prime Power Supply), and the AKG K812 (on its stand)...well, you can't get much more compact than that (in terms of the functionality squeezed into the footprint).

lol, I've seen posts here (not necessarily this thread) from a user who thought a TT can play both vinyl and cd's. You never know.

Jude, can you give us your thoughts on the K812 vs HD800 difference? Would be nice to get a credible thoughts on that matter.

New headphone stands arrived, so I cleared my desk and took a couple of shots. I ended up installing a bunch of larger hanger-knobs under my desk to make better use of the space too. Even still I had to use spare hooks to hold everything.

Indeed. Shine II with MX Browns. Usually my spare, I use a KBT Pure in my desktop rig.

Heck. That's a lot of audio gear in one spot. I find that stacking headphones on stands on top of things to be somewhat precarious though, had a few heart thumpers when I've accidentally knocked the stand and headphone onto the desk/floor.
