Yes I tried my AKG K 340 heavy Bass version with my Eximus Dp 1
Soource : CD Player CDA 500 as CD Transport
DAC : Eximus Dp 1
Headamp : Eximus Dp 1
Coax cable : Home Grown 75 ohm
RCA Cable : Home Grown Silver Lace
High : open , detail and very clean
i can hear cymbals from Keith Jarret Trio very clear and clean
Mid : sweet and lush
The Piano sound very natural and full tone
Bass : clean and detail , but not so impactfull, because AKG K 340 is power hungry Headphone
Soundstage : wide and with good depth
Separation : is very good from Eximus , i can hear the instrument placement in the correct position
Conculsion : AKG K 340 heavy Bass Version need big Headamp with big Power reserve.
with the Eximus DP 1 sound just fine , Sound Quality is very good , but AKG K 340 need
powerfull HeadAmp can sound very good.
For good listening condition , i must drive my AKG K 340 with Eximus DP 1 at 15 / 3 o clock.
I can still drive to maxx , sound still good no distorsion.
Eximus Dp 1 is one the Best DAC Amp Combo in Price to $ 5000 USD
If someone said the Amp Section is NOT so good , please check the Source , please use CD Player as Transport,
do not use DAP or Ipod as Source , for drive very difficult Headphone like AKG K 340
I drive LCD 2 rev 2 , LCD 3 , HD 800 with my Eximus DP 1 no Problem , for normal to easy to drive Headphone i use my Imac 27" with USB
and My Onkyo NDS 1000 as Digital Media Transport with my Ipod Classic 160 Gb 7th Gen.
