Hello, I just joined. I live in Austin, TX, USA...
I am in the process of ordering the V200 with the USB option from Lake. In reading these blogs, I notice that many people have commented on the Optional DAC (not the V800). Is this listed in the Violectric purchasing options? If so, which one is it? They are not open today or I would ask them via E-mail.
I just purchased an HD800 and from reading a great deal of blogs it appears this amp will moderately reduce the brightness of the HD800 which many have commented about. My other consideration is the Burson Conductor but from most accounts it will be too bright for me. Are my assumptions correct?
In regards to the V800 DAC, does it serve as good DAC for a full stereo system with amps/speakers etc. or is it more predominately designed for the headphone amp?
You can email them and you'll get a quick reply - the owner of the company just posted here right above you. Not many other companies are as accessible as Lake People.
I use the V800 in a speaker based system and it does a great job. There's not really any specific reason a DAC would work better in a headphone only scenario.
