What is the best amp you've ever heard with the Sennheiser HD 600?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

(I posted this in the headphones forum as I was thinking of it from a headphones' point of view, but I'm also posting it here as I'd be interested and grateful to hear some opinions)

 

I'm wondering (even for those who don't have them or no longer have them) what is the best amp they've ever heard with the HD 600? (even at past hifi get togethers) I'd tend to believe that a tube amp might pair better with the Senns but I'm curious to hear if you've really been impressed by a certain amp (and/or DAC too)

 

Cheers

I am using a stock bottlehead crack right now and I am extremely happy with it.  Was also happy with previously owned LD MK3 and the Woo6.  However, I am more pleased with the synergy and the musical punch and energy that the crack throws in.  What about you, which amp did you like with the HD600.

Just curious, what about the Bottlehead Crack was better than the WA6?

Just my subjective experience.  Would not say better. The 6 drives the HD600 at 300 ohms with impact but my 600 ohm beyer, it lack the impact. The buyer of the woo6 is happy driving his HD600.  I may be happy with the crack while somebody may not share the same excitement that I have.  This is not the crack vs. the Woo6 claim.  Just sharing my personal enjoyment.  Hope this helps.

I enjoyed the 6 with my HD600 but my stock crack drives it with more ooomph. The crack drives the DT880 well but to push the DT880 further, I use the SS CK2III.

RSA Apache

Marantz 2285 Receiver

Moth SI 2A3/45i

Dynamid (Balanced Dynalo)

 

I still own three of the four mentioned (Apache is gone). Those are the best...if your on a budget? Something tubed, for the higher impedance voltage driven is best for the money.
