Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread - Page 599

post #8971 of 8973
I'm a few days away from becoming part of this great group as well! Managed to secure a pair, as well as the O2 + ODAC (non-integrated), for $500 total.

Question though: using a MacBook Pro as my source, will the ODAC be necessary. It's separate from the O2, so I could always sell if it doesn't make a difference sonically.

My opinion is yes, you should use the ODAC.  Without it, you cannot deliver a line-level output to your O2, so you'd be amplifying an already amplified signal (first with your Macbook, then with your O2).  

 

I can't comment on how the ODAC sounds as I haven't spent a great deal of time with it.
