I said in a previous post that other impressions of the sound signature have been general, not specific. After actually going back and looking at a few of them (not all...so there may be more I missed), I see I was wrong.
It's interesting to note the differences between Otinkyad's and Head Dragon's impressions - which are more or less in agreement with each other - and Gwarmi's. Not to put down anyone's observations - it's just striking how subjective this hobby is.
Guess we all have different views - just putting the RS220 through some bright stuff now - Aerosmith's 'Dude looks like a lady'
compared to the HD650 next to me they sound more forward and definitely brighter! I'm running them in tandem, HD650
off a Sugden HA-4 Masterclass, SPDIF out from the DAC to the RS220 base unit.
To me the RS220 has a slight mid range 'shoutiness' that is absent from the HD650.
