LOL...

 

No offense meant to anyone.

Individual taste rules all regarding audio re-production.

 

Auditioning gear is really the way to go if possible.

Incidentally, on the subject of neutrality,

 

I would be curious to hear how many studio professionals here have seen a tube amp used as the PRIMARY reference power source in a recording studio in the last 2 decades...

JDS labs O2 amp + Behringer UCA 202 then

 

Well, you're definitely not going to find much love for behringer around here, many of their products are not so hot for sure.

Often their products are used for cost-cutting purposes.

 

I'm just saying I found no advantage with the Nuforce icon hdp verses the O2 and UCA 202.

 

However, I'm quite confident in my view that the O2 with the UCA 202 as DAC sounded quite nice indeed.

Cheap/functional alternative if you're on a budget.

 

I'm sure their are o DAC/amp combos that will work fabulously well.

They are mainly used for pre-amps, FX units, some compressors, and GTR amps.

I know.

 

When was the last have you seen one used for monitoring purposes as opposed to front end??

I'd like to know how it goes with the Vali, too.

 

Infact, how does the HD600 pair with the Valhalla?

That would be VERY interesting.

Obviously there are very good reasons why this is a practice of the past.

I have an HD600, Vali and Asgard 2. The HD600 works very nicely with either amp. If you can put in some more cash, I'd get the Asgard 2 instead of either Vali or O2. If you want an inexpensive portable, the FiioO E12 is very nice.

I was under the impression that the use of tube amps was to distort the sound in a pleasant manner, i.e. total harmonic distortion compensates for certain qualities lost in the process of recording music making it sound more like real life. Also changing tubes is a easy way to change the sound signature without changing headphones. In other words faithful reproduction of what was recorded is not the goal?

 

I have also read that some of the sonic character of tube amps could possibly be achieved by careful equalising and attaching resistances to a solid state amp.

You emphasised "primary".  I gather that means you know that a lot of high quality studios employ tubes in the pre-amping of microphones - especially for recording the human voice and some instruments.

 

Anything else you'd like to hide from us to skew your baloney arguments?

To add, tube amps are often used in the mastering process, as well.

I'm just amused that the discussion was initially about what amps pair well with the HD600.  I know the question was asked about neutrality - and for me both the NFB-12 & LD MKIV (while both having a touch of warmth) are still relatively neutral/natural sounding (depending of course on which tubes you have in the LD).

 

The next thing - the remarks start coming about neutrality for studio use - and that was never introduced or asked about.

 

AFAIK - we were discussing what was best simply for listening.

 

I also am really amazed at some of the snide remarks toward peoples preference.  I personally like both SS and Tube.  I'd never belittle anyone though that had a preference one way or the other.  It's all about sharing experiences - even if you don't agree with other's perspective.  Live and let live.
