What do you like? I don't like bright either.

EDIT:

 

I apologize for the double post, I made an error in using the quote function.

I  went to Razordog and purchased the 600's and entered the $100 discount and it was rejected. 

Then they sent me an email offering another $30 discount to the allowable $50 rebate bringing 

it to 319 from 399.  I was amazed to say the least. 

Now what amp to buy, 

ld mk4se

woo 2

schiit valhalla

Any other thoughts?? 

thanks

I use a Lyr with my 600s and love it

I've used a bunch of portables and a few budget desktops. I've used the HD600 w/ Vallhalla, Magni, Asgard 1, E9, E09K, P4, SR71A, AHA-120 and O2. I think my favorite pairing is with the SR71A, but it is an expensive portable amp that needs batteries replaced; I don't own one now and am tempted every time I see one to buy it again. Personally, as of right now, I'm liking the Objective2 a ton w/ the HD600. 

 

Were I DIY guy w/ money and skills, I would have bought and done a Bottlehead Crack by now, but its not a cheap option, unless you already have the tools.

I thought all HD600 were the same colour on the outside. Or am I missing the joke? redface.gif

Too much work and risk if you're not experienced with soldering electronics, like me. The Matrix M-Stage is not picky when it comes to headphones and sounds excellent with pretty much anything. Apparently it's magical with the HD800 too, not that I've had the pleasure of personally hearing that combination.

My 2c

 

Budget SS Dac/Amp with heaps of power, clean background, and can easily handle the HD600s - all the way up to 600ohm Beyer DT880s - try the Audio-gd NFB-15.32.  Really nice with the HD600.

 

You can also go line-out from the DAC, add a tube amp later - and have the best of both worlds.  LD MKIV is another really nice pairing with the HD600.

+2 for Crack

IMO, the instruction manual for the Crack is so ridiculously thorough that it almost completely minimizes the risk of assembling the kit.  As long as you are detail-oriented it is pretty easy to get through (2 nights for me).

Is there a place where you can buy a nicer case for the crack, the top aluminum cover and the wooden panels?

I just purchased a pair of hd600's for 319  shipped. Now the long dreaded wait for ground shipping.

Now I need an amp to go with my analog tube section. Any suggestions? 

thanks

What amp are you using. I ordered my HD600 two weeks back and I got Mullard 8161 for my Mk3. It's clearer, more detailed for mid-low compared with the stocks.

I currently have the matrix m and a pair of fostex t50rp's modded by mayflower. This is my first

attempt and it sounds good but the cans are heavy and I am not sure I like the closed in feeling.

With that said I just ordered the 600's be here Friday and I want a tube amp. I think I have narrowed 

it down to the ld mkivse, or woo wa3 or 6. Any thoughts? 

thanks

Hey guys, I have owned the HD 600 for a few months now. My review with photos can be seen here: http://www.rhdit.com/hd-600-review/

 

I am still experimenting with amplification though. Currently I have the Fiio E11 and Bravo Audio V2. Although both have enough power, I really see no large improvement when listening at safe levels over my X-FI Fatality Pro sound card. I am leaning towards OTL Tube amp's because of what I have read about them. But from my experience, the E11 (solid state) sounds cleaner (better SNR) and flatter than the Bravo V2 (tube). I am not considering a DIY project, and would like something under $400.

Schiit Valhala should fit the bill very nicely.

post #3750 of 17469

Thanks for the suggestion Byronb. That looks to fit the bill perfectly. However, I am wondering if I should bother getting a different DAC also, or an amp with DAC. My DAC is not bad as it is (112SNR), so I figured my return would not be worthwhile. What do you think?
