The HD800's sound alright with it. The Vandersteen 2Ce Signature II's love the huge 200 Watts push.


that is one Fricken MASSIVE amp!!! Sorry about the tube loss!!

It is a beast...Great sound though. I love tubes better, but they do wear out over time.

Mike.......Here's my headphone station with my new Senheiser HD800.  It is sounding absolutely amazing.

Nice. Which W4S DAC is that and how do you like it?

My modified Beyerdynamics T70's. Not ideal but it will be ok till I get them fixed.
I'm using a ProJect USB DAC, I like it. Not sure if I need a headphone amp or not..

Been switching between the Burson and the DA8, and the Burson still puts up a good fight!

Try using the dac section in the DA8 and amp section in the conductor.  I think that is your best bet.

Oh, it's the HA-160DS, but yes, the DAC section of the DA8 plus the amplifier section of the Burson does sound pristine.

I liked the 160ds for the money. Nice Dac/Amp combo with my HD650's....

The sr80i's sound pretty good with the Vali. I think that is mainly due to the mods I made to my grados.

drewTT.......That is the W4S DAC2.  Hi-res from the laptop sounds super clean, open, dynamic and solid.  I am pleased with the HD800/DAC2/Musical Fidelity X-Can V8P rig, although I have some interest in the new Sennheiser HDVA 600 amplifier.  I wish there were some solid reviews available on the HDVA 600.  It's tough to let go of that kind of money without some positive motivation from satisfied owners and/or an experienced reviewer.

Looked thru quite a few of the rigs in this thread tonight. Makes me wonder what the total value of the equipment in the thread would be. $1 mil? $10 mil? I'm sure its a big number.

Wow some of you guys have epic headphone setups.

For portable use I have the Sennheiser IE80 with custom cable and driven by the Note 3:
