Looks exquisite mate, is that the HD600 or 650?

post #16697 of 20149

It's the HD650. I may have got carried away with the image filters. :D

Thanks! Yes, those are the PYST cables. Nice setup with you too! Always glad to see some Schiit. :D

Likes it. Great photo as always. 

 

Is the Vali a keeper? I keep promising to get myself one every payday, but then I always get something bigger!

Thanks Lug.

 

Yep, the Vali is a damn good buy. I'm sure you've at least glanced over the Vali thread. All the plaudits are warranted imo - particularly in its synergy with the HD800. Great resolve with good depth of soundstage, liquid smooth transitions and extended yet glare and grain free top end. My only gripe is that bass can be a tad loose (compared to the Mjolnir). Some may find that especially pleasing though.

Olor1n - that all looks great. How is the Mjolnir with the HD800s...? and the 650s, for that matter? Thinking of changing my formum name to Envious Chris.

It's unanimous how good the Mjolnir is for the Audez'e line but there are very few here who use it to drive the HD800. The assumption is that it is too lively for the Senn. That is what I found too when I had it paired with the Gungnir. Upgrading to M51 revealed the Schiit dac as the culprit, with the Mjolnir simply presenting the source as is - no gloss, warts and all. With the M51/MJ pairing I get soundstage width, deep but tight low end, explosive dynamics, and zesty upper mids and treble - without the obnoxiously loud and compressed dynamics, and fatigue inducing grain I suffered from the Gungnir/MJ combo.

 

The Mjolnir is a wicked amp for the HD650. It turns a quaint indie film into a balls to the wall action blockbuster. I'm not sure how the HD650 could sound better.

Right. I'm gonna get one. (next payday...) I've just bought some more cans. I'll post pics when received.

I go to Burgundy at least once a year, maybe twice, wine buying. April is not a great month for me. What are the details?

This is the only place in the world that would appreciate such a statement

 

So which ones did you have her audition and which amp did you settle on getting her? :)
