Love those speakers, the contrast to everything else is perfect.

From left to right:

 

LD MKIVSE

Audio-GD FUN (A) (Sun OPA)

HE-300

SP MPX3 (6SN7x2 & 2C51)

Sony Vaio

DV 336SE

NuForce u-Dac (rear)

Fiio E07k (rear)

What is your favorite amp pairing with the HD650? I'm in the market for a new unit (mostly going back and forth between the Crack and Rega EAR at the moment), and would love to hear what you think of various amps that I haven't yet looked into thoroughly.

Thank's for the explanation

 

:beerchug:

 

 

Hey indrameyz,

 

I purchased the HE-300 used from a head-fier and they came with velour and pleather pads.  Don't know if they are stock or not.

 

Yes, punchy bass but not overpowering, mids are delicious and they have handled various genres quite nicely (metal, rock, hip-hop, house, trance, dub etc.).  Vocals are sweeeeet indeed!

 

The DT880s are more refined overall with less bass and has the edge on the top end.  I'll take the mids of the HE-300 anyday..lol...:D

 

Cheers!

Hey ssrocks64,

 

Well, through the years I have plugged them into various amps.  My favorite amp for them that I own if I had to choose one to take to a desert island that has power for a year would be the WA2. :D.............Next would be the Mapletree Ear+HD (it's not only for Grados)...:bigsmile_face:

 

The MKIVSE and DV336SE (fitz mod) are no slouches with 'em either and they sound good indeed but there's something about the WA2 and the synergy.

 

Solid state I would go with LDMKVII (balanced) and for SE the A-GD NFB-11.32.  The sabre chip in the 11.32 matches very well with the HD650s and really opens them up quite nicely.

 

I hear the Crack is a monster with the HD650s, but unfortunately never listened to it.

 

Cheers!

I stumbled across this thread a couple of months back now and i have finally caught up, ive pretty well read or at least skimmed over every single post. its been very enlightening seeing certain peoples "head-fi station' evolve over the time. My rig is still a bit of a work in progress, i thought i was done but nope, my wa7 TP has been shipped back for repairs, a big shoutout to hifiguy528 or mike, over at Woo audio for taking great care of me!. Ill also probably be picking up a GS-X mk2 the week after next as well. Anyway here is my rig as it currently is. Ill take some nicer shots once i get my final parts in. :)
Sorry about the bad quality pictures, i was expecting them to turn out better.. oh well, i promise the next batch will be better!

Very impressive collection of gear.  What do you think of the Lehmann Linear, compared with the other amps?  I've been seriously considering one of these and I see you have phones plugged into the Woo and the Schiit, but not the Lehmann.  Are you still using it?

@HeatFan12 : seems to be yummy for under $300 biggrin.gif
from your impression it can outmanuvering the dt770 80ohm which i found have a laidback mids on it (and the dt770 are spend a lot $ than the HE-300 in my place,even the dt770 are cheaper from the dt880 i still can't enjoy the laidback mids on the dt770 frown.gif ) thank's mate biggrin.gif

See it is listed for sale so I think that answers your question! ;) I would also be interested to hear some thoughts on how they compare, especially the WA7 as that has been on my radar for a while. Had the BCL as well for around 2 years, before I decided it was a bit lightweight for the HE-500.

As its been said its for sale currently. I think i liked the way it sounded better with my LCD 3s then my mjolnir However not as detailed. Its definetly a good little amp but its past its prime. The wa7 only drives my HD800 and the M/G stack is for the rest of the headphones, i keep them all balanced another reason why i dont use the black cube. However im looking at buying a GS-X mk2 atm :)
