SR-71A and PA2V2 - Am I deaf - Page 3

post #31 of 35

I enjoy reading this thread, and I think everyone's opinion is here for us to appreciate, not to judge. I find that power alone isn't everything for portable amp, the synergy that I get in pairing certain headphones with  amps that can bring the kind of impact to the music that I want to hear is everthing. I like pairing my mustang with b&w p5, just like what I like about the synergy in my arrow g3 + sony z1000

So my beyerdynamic Dt-880 (600 ohms) would be driven fine by my SR-71A?? I have avoided using them on this amp - though I am using my HD-600's...

Ray would.

The "For Sale" forum is your friend. You'll see a SR71 pop up on occasion. It was one of Ray's better creations and is a good value at the prices you'll see now. Although I've never spent quality time with new SR71A, I've got to believe there are options for less than what RSA charges. rolleyes.gif

I'm very much a fan of the SR-71A and I think it is totally worth the money considering what you need to pay for the same kind of audio quality you hear in tube headphone amps or home sized headphone amps....
