Not all people or even audiophiles like the true sound.
Studio sound is for studio. The equipments there is supposed to be sound music as it is so that they can blend it altogether.
They are many brands in the market which colored the sound so that they can make music sound more musical to our taste
Do Krell or Pass Labs (designed by Nelson Pass) sound the same. Hell no , at least not to my ears
Some like to hear bass, some like to hear mids & some like to hear treble .
When i am using my hd600, i do feel that the sounds colored a bit (more warm) when i comparing it to hd800.
But, to me this is where the HD600 excels because i am able to bring me to its world of music.
To me Hd800 is about real thing while HD600 is about being in a fantasy land.
By the way, i am using hybrid amp made by a friend of mine which uses cca pre 1965 tubes.
How much it will cost you if you buy from a reputable seller ? Just forget about it.
Crack have so many good reviews all around the world when driving Hd600.
Better yet, it also recieved good reviews when driving HD800 which is well known for its "picky attitude" towards any equipment
Any amp that can Hd800 sings is worthy of an equipment esp for that low price
