Gahh!! So wish I had 2 grand to drop on one of these! but, alas, I have not even close to the extra funds needed.... Oh well that's why the Nad 3020 and good used speakers are around :D

I'm all for guns when used properly, and when I'm not facing the wrong end of one.  tongue_smile.gif

My office system is:

- MacBookAir playing ALAC with Decibel

- Meyer Audio StageDac

- Meyer Audio Concerto (headphone amp)

- Grado RS1i and Beyer T1

 

Mainly listen to Rock, Hardrock, Jazz, Pop and Progressive.

 

Would the Phonitor be a relevant upgrade to the Concerto? If not, wich alternative even without crossfeed as the StageDac already has that function.

 

Budget up to 5.000€.

 

Thanks.

There is no way live without crossfeed, Phonitor is really great.

I love the look of this amp and I've almost pulled the trigger on one a half dozen times. The only thing holding me back is its output impedance of 9Ω, since a large number of my headphones are 50 or less.

David seems to like his TH900 with this amp: http://www.head-fi.org/t/634201/battle-of-the-flagships-58-headphones-compared-update-audeze-lcd-2-revision-2-6-4-13#user_TH900

An interesting video Jude. However today we have software implementations for this kind of device - I doubt with the very same effects though, but maybe a more advanced thinking. For example, FIDELIA's FX headphone module. More importantly, I noticed the Heckler&Koch T-shirt you are wearing, which proves that a world class intellect is lurking behind it. Do wear ear protection however!

 

BTW, I have a Centrance M8 on its way and an HK .45c too. It is possible that great minds think alike?

Reporting back after getting one and trying it with the TH900: it mates absolutely flawlessly. There is also a -20dB switch which is there specially for low-impedance headphones. I'm using mine with this switch off, don't really see any need for it.
