Legendary synergy?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 

In your opinion, what amp/headphone pairing typically has excellent synergy?

 

I have read about the Woo2/T1 and MAD Ear+HD/RS1 pairings. Any others come to mind?

HA-160D and LCD2 they say.

post #3 of 27

HD-600 and Asgard

Beats Pro and WA22

Matrix M-Stage and K702/K701/Q701

 

 

My personal favorite by far...

 

Headroom Micro Amp and Q701

 

Sadly it seems the Headroom stuff isn't as popular here as it was years ago..

 

BTW I also thought the D2000 and Asgard was pretty dang impressive.

 

Don't laugh...M50/D2000 with Nuforce Icon Mobile..seriously (that one's from me..and only if you love your mids more than treble/bass)

 

Somehow I never heard an amp having magical synergy with the HD-650? Why is this?

 Two of late for me,

 

 HD800 and Ray Samuels Raptor - many will disagree with this but I quite like it.

 

 LCD3 with the Sugden Masterclass HA-4 or SPL Phonitor. Good matches there, although it's not half

 bad with a Woo 6 SE either.

 

 Ok that's more than two..

Is the Woo2/T1 magic still there?

biggrin.gif, oh yes! The magic is always there... the T1 are very close to perfect when paired with the WA2. 

 

Currently had to get my T1 repaired though, so I can't give any impressions at the moment, hopefully i get them back sometime early next week.

Although I'm not a fan of my Q701 as of the moment in terms of sound, I find the Q701 to have excellent synergy with the HA-160DS, and it also sounds mighty fine with the HD650.

Thanks, let us know.

 

Not sure if my HD650/Lyr combo is legendary, but right now I'm extremely happy with the way the Senns woke up.

 

Ho. Lee. Schiit.  smile.gif

+1 I've heard the LF with the LCD-2. I'm partially convinced that it's the best the LCD-2 has ever sounded.

One from a recent meet, the HE-6 out of my Realistic STA-2200 receiver.  Not exactly legendary since there's only 10 people or so that have heard it one time 2 weeks ago, but it deserves to be.

I heard that combo at a meet right after the HD800 came out and thought it was very blah.  At the same meet there were 2 other HD800 rigs that were much better.  The best was a TTVJ Millet Hybrid.  That was one of the best sounding rigs I've ever heard.
