I'm currently listening to my SRH1840s with a borrowed ADL Esprit DAC and my Apex Butte, altough the sound is not hyper-engaging or astonishing but man, do these have and open, expansive soundstage and spot-on imaging!
The sound is wonderfully natural as well.
Every instrument sound like you were listening to live music.
I don't want to start a flame war, but you should appreciate the good qualities of this headphone not only chide the bad.
