Thanks for the answer. That would explain why this thing sounds so darn good. I mean, it sounds REALLY good.
I'm listening to some Eric Clapton right now and can't get over how real his voice sounds, not to mention all of the "space" around him and the other instruments. Even though it was years ago and with different cans (HD600's and 650's), I never heard this music sound this good through a well run-in Cary Audio SLi-80 I had for a while on loan.
In short, I'm quite impressed!
Also, I'm curious is any of you have directly compared these old receivers to modern, higher dollar dedicated headphone amps. It would be interesting to see how these vintage receivers stack up against the new dedicated gear.
