Most definitely. Have two great balanced Q Cables for the HD800s and LCD-3s.

Same thing that made the HD800 worth keeping over the LCD-2... GS-X mk2 =)

 

It really filled out the bottom on the HD800 and the treble is just butter.  Problem is it did it's magic on the LCD-3 too.  Pure natural dynamics, eye blinking impact and deep deep bass.  Imaging is pin point and unlike the HD800 performance is consistent and not music dependent.  That in the end was the nail in the coffin for the HD800, some song have a lot of content in its problem area and sound horrid.  Others fall in its strengths and sound great.  My review list... fell in its great range so it took some time to zero in on it.  Now I have a new list ;)

Sol,

I'm sorry what DAC are you pairing with your amp?
post #1372 of 4457

im really excited to get the GSX, hope it works well with HD 800, based on all the reviews, seems like its just what i need for LCD-3 and HE-500.

 

seems like they sound a little slow on my WA6-SE, its close to perfect, but i do hear some flaws. seems like SS will be the best choice. unless of course, i had $5500 to spend on an Allnic HPA5000,

 

if the Hd 800 don't impress me on GSX, i will get the WA5 or WA22.

post #1373 of 4457

If the GS-X mk2 doesn't impress the WA22 has no chance of either.  My WA22 was bested by 3-4 amps I've had, all cost less.  I'd like to hear the EC 2A3 some day but I really have no reason to any more /shrug

+1, WA5 and WA22 is a waste of money. Dougs ECP amp's seem to be very good with the HD800, Tyll enjoyed it for his Abyss review. They aren't very expensive either.

i think the GSX will satisfy my needs as far as an endgame SS amp and a planar amp

 

for my endgame tube amp, i want a euphonic, smooth, and warm tube amp, but i want it to be transparent and detailed as well, with some good bass, tight and controlled, yet with enough quantity, even if its a little more than neutral, oh and good transients/speed

 

am i asking for too much ? :(

No your not. It has to be perfect. I have a feeling that GSX will be excellent with the planars

Why are you focusing on just obtaining a mythical "end game" status and wasting money rather than focusing what you enjoy most? For the sake of e-peen contest? Just go with whatever you hear sounds best to your ears.

 

There lies in another problem, you can't have a tube amp that is distortively warm and euphonic but be transparent or neutral at the same time, even with tube rolling, it will be limited greatly depending on the circuit and design of the amplifier itself. Some say the Super 7 is a chameleon of an amp with the HD800's but than a lot of other people say otherwise.

e-vag :tongue:

 

and cause i feel that i have not reached perfection.

 

there is better, and i must have it.

 

also its not a contest, if i wanted to win, all i need is 009 and some high end stat amp or a kavalli amp and be done.

Good luck with that because there is no such thing as perfection, it doesn't exist in this world, it is just a loosely thrown term of what people want to achieve. No law governs or schematics say and describe what perfection is, as things can only be improved better over time.

 

Aside from that, why not just spend $50k on a MSB Diamond DAC tomorrow and get yourself some $100k monoblocks to drive your headphones? I'm sure if you follow the logic of moar expensive = better than you should be done with your upgrades.

 

I think this hobby and the negative influences from Head-fi has drove you into a state where you've become delusional and care more about gear than music enjoyment itself.

 

Very sad. :(
