Also i just noticed that the HP-A8C has now supported wav file, which is AWESOME! I'm looking forward to get the A8C now to pair with my TH900.

I plan on having DHC hardware silver litz into the earcups and terminate them at the y split with Audeze mini XLRs. From there I can have different bottom cables for different needs.

I have the M8 and absolutely love it with the TH900, there's some pretty good synergy with this combination.  I set it to 1 ohm and use the low gain setting, this seems to yield the best sound.  I continue to be impressed with both products, and would even say they are the best I've heard in their respective classifications.

Thanks for that cardude. Waiting for all the bugs to get squashed before pulling the trigger on the M8. That and scrounging up some dough (of course). Good to hear that the TH900 has good synergy with this. Makes the decision to purchase the M8 all the more justifiable.

Really like this headphone! Listened once, and then enchanted.

 

Is there anyone interested in W3000ANV? I want to use W3000ANV trade for TH900 or TH900s (I could add extra money)

If you were here a week ago, you'd be in luck :).

Help help! (´・_・`) Now my problem is, I have already own the HDP-R10, I want a decent portable amp for my TH900 and my LCD3, should I purchase KOJO-KM01 for my need and pair with the R10? The HP-A8C would be my last option if I can't find any suitable amp...

Really hard to choose, as I don't have a chance to try all these amp myself...

the EF-6 has a gain switch on the back....make sure you put it in the negative gain position or you won't have any play with the volume knob....

That Kojo amp is only 20mw at 32ohms. I would suggest something with atleast 300mw.

Did anyone try TH900 with HDVD800? Recently bought a HDVD800 but I'm not quite satisfied to use it with W3000ANV.

they sound very good together....the EF-6 is a gentle giant....very powerful but very resolving & musical too.... the EF-6 was designed for hard-to-drive planars and high impedence dynamics and works very well with them.....the TH900's are low impedence and thus my warning about the gain switch....even on the lower gain the volume knob will be at about 7 o'clock.....to fine tune the sound you might have to use the computer volume....
