I thought the vali was a dsd dac? It shouldn't be functioning when using regular hd files.

I realise this is a 600 appreciation thread - but I'd be really grateful if anyone has advice about replacement/repair for its close,older cousin the 580....

I'm in Sydney by the way.

cheers!

You can either order HD580 or HD600 / HD650 parts. Hope that helps, as they aren't too cheap.

Some interesting trends are starting to appear in the results of the HD600 vs HD650 poll:

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/698372/the-ultimate-hd600-vs-hd650-poll

 

If we get 15-20 more votes we should be able to say something more definitive, so please vote if you've compared both headphones using a similar setup and haven't voted yet.

I think that the poll already showed what I expected .....

 

20 people either think the HD650 is better or prefer it between the two

21 people either think the HD600 is better or prefer it between the two

4 can't decide

 

Ultimately it depends on a persons preference

They're both great cans and if what you have makes your ears happy, you're a winner.

Thanks mrAdrian. I suppose the parts do look a little pricey but its better than just sending the 580s off to landfill!

As of today I've gone from an admirer to an owner. I can already say that these phones are lovely. They sound great out of a Meizu MX and though a FiiO E17. Now I just need a proper DAC/amp.

They're not that hard to drive so you don't have to get carried away with killer amps. They are more sensitive than the HD650's.

So something along the lines of these will do?

 

 

 

Any preferences among these for the 600?

I happen to like Schiit. Are you planning to use a cellphone as your source? If so the choice of DAC can be tricky.

Rarely. Primary source will be my PC playing lossless through Foobar2k. Eventually I'll get a quality DAP with a line-out, too.

Then let the fun begin.
