As a noob to the forum I had posted a question elsewhere but then realised it was in the wrong (well, not exactly) place and got no replies so I then I googled my question and found this thread which is the perfect place to get the info I need, I think.
For the last 15 years my Acoustic Research TT has been in a box, along with its Trio IA. I decided to start using them again and realised I wanted a different amp to try, and speakers. I found a Sony STR 7065, a Technics and more recently a Rotel RA 412 (yep, its become an obsession)
I have also been looking for speakers and quickly realised these are difficult to find in vintage form and at a decent price, also the rest of the family do not appreciate me rocking the house. So I decided to buy a pair of headphones. I lost my 1980's bought Sennheiser 420(?) which, as I remember, were OK but now I want to find a pair that work well with any of the amps I have.
I figured I might buy
ATH D700X ATH A900X
Sennheiser HD 598, 600 or 650
I wonder which of the amps would offer the best reproduction to the headphones. I am not a basshead and have no interest in the bass overwhelming (is that the right term?) the rest of my music.
I listen (currently) to Neil Young, Adele, Bjork, Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd.
I bought a pair of Koss Porta Pro and thought they were "OK" for my Samsung Tablet, but thats all.
Would any of those Amps have difficulty driving the HD 600/650. I am still getting to grips with impedance and dont really know (or understand) how to figure it out.
Anyway, any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
By the way, as I became obsessed with this "return to the golden age of vinyl" quest, I also bought two dual TT's (a 1019 and a 1229, a cabinet music console AND a no name TT (just for the styli) all this and a pair 2 pairs of speakers, SAE Mark X and Celestion CS7, for under $200.00. So now I have separate listening stations where I can hide from "she who must..(be obeyed)"
