so you think HD700 will works well with this amp,,,
which only have 150 ohms
i am planning to get that headphone too
I would think that the Auditor wouldn't have any issues driving it at all. It's a powerful amp and can probably give it more than enough juice.
I would think they would not work well. They require current, which the Auditor does not output enough of. There might even be impedance issues because of the 9Ohm output impedance of the amp. That impedance is quite high.
Well you should go by the output impedance and multiply it by 8, so 72Ohm's sound about right. This is to help remove impedance mismatching. It's true that lower impedance gear does sound iffy on the amp, but not at all that bad. I like the way my SRH-440 sounds on it.
And if you're interested I have a Beyerdynamic T70 on the way here from another head-fier to try out.
Thanks my friend ;)
I have heard the Senn 800s with the Phonitor and was not all that impressed. Then again, most times I have heard the 800s with ss amps I have not been impressed. The amp that did make the 800s sound good to me was the Eddie Current Zana Deux. Perhaps the Beyers 600 ohm cans would be more a match for the Auditor and Phonitor.
That might be a nice combo. I used to own the Lavry DA10 and it is kind of like a tube dac in a sense. Rich low end and smooth highs. Might synergize well with the Phonitor and 800.
