This thread needs some pictures :D Some of these setups look very good.

FLAC  ->  VLC  ->  Burson DA-160  ->  Rockhopper Beta 22 6-channel  -> HD 800

Foobar 2k -> ASIO -> X-Fi Titanium HD -> Little Dot MK III with Mullard 8100 tubes -> HD800 with stock cable (brand new)

 

The tube amp manages to sweeten a bit the coldness of the Titanium HD + the natural cold nature of the HD800.

Great for games, OK for movies and somewhat manageable for music (but not after 4+ hours of listening)

Overall great soundstage, fast and "electrostatic" bass.

 

I'm gathering some cash to purchase a Burson DA-160 and later on a WA2 amp.

MM > CIAudio Transient MK II (via iS2) > PWD MK II > Calvalli Liquid Glass (w/ RCA 6SN7 Coin Base Tubes) > HD800 (Painted Matte Black) w/ Norse Audio Skuld 2 

 

So good...

I had a nice upgrade smily_headphones1.gif
FLAC -> Cardas Clear USB Cable -> Burson DA-160 DAC -> Nordost Blue Heaven 1m interconnects-> Little Dot MKIII / Mullard M8100 -> Stock Cable with HD800

I'm hunting for a WA2 amp and probably a Toxic Cable Silver Poison.
Any other alternatives for replacing the Stock Cable?

I'd be inclined to run it with an O2/ODAC and EQ out the peaks and troughs. The HD600s are more neutral in terms of frequency response but basing your purchases purely around frequency response means that other factors such as soundstage and imaging may not be what you want. That way you get the clarity of the HD800s but with the neutrality that makes them less sibilant.
