Considering doing the same, although I may get the V800 at some point if for any reason the Mojo doesn't work out as a desktop DAC?

Looking for a decent, fairly inexpensive DAC to go along with the V200 and Sennheiser HD 800 (SuperDupont mod). Would Schiit Bifrost do the job? Any other recommendations in the same price range?

 

Thanks in advance.

Lake People RS 06. Are you from the US? If yes, then ask Violectric USA for a price.

 

Else, Schiit Bifrost Multibit.

How does it compare to the Bakoon HPA 21?

I'm a new owner of the rather awesome Ether C headphones, and after lot of different pairings (Lehmann Black Cube, Fostex HP-P1, Justaudio AH120) I've settled on running them just with the Violectric V200. I've discovered that for me the combination is certainly transparent (plenty of the black background the V200 is known for) but much more significantly the amp gives the Ether Cs the weight and bass that can be a bit light - but there's no loss of accuracy, just a sense of solidity. There's also plenty of thrilling slam. I've tried using the HP-P1s with the amp solely as a DAC but find it becomes too ethereal. It runs off with itself. Funnily enough the only new component I'm toying with is the Chord Mojo as DAC - so wonder if you went in the end with that combination and whether it was nice. By way I find the Ether Cs infinitely better with the V200 than Audeze LCD2 Rev2. It's defintely a sweet match IMHO.

Thanks. For now I'll be using my NFB-11 DAC but will look into upgrading it later this year/next year.

 

By the way, just ordered the V200 from Thomann.de for 699€ (B-stock). Super excited right now. Can't wait for it to arrive.

 

Also, I am a bit confused about the pre-gain options in the amp:

 

 

What would be the best settings for the HD-800?

Best start at 0 gain and try out for yourself..just make sure power is off when you switch gain

Can anyone compare the V200 with a capable, but budget amp like my Project Polaris?

 

I'm using HD600.

What about the Violectric internal DAC board for the V200?

 

There is a choice of 7.

I'm currently using the amp with my NFB-11 and it sounds great. Don't really feel like I need an upgrade anytime soon.

Wow the HD600 sounds awesome on the V200..:eek:
