Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread - Page 431
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I'm gonna be honest that the HP-A8 & TH-900 didn't really thrill me that much. I had the HP-A8 for quite a few months before moving on. I think the amp portion of the HP-A8 was the weakest point of the whole DAC/Amp. Using it as a DAC to feed into the WA7 was more satisfactory than straight headphone out of the HP-A8.
Although I didn't spend much time with the HP-A4, it kinda grabbed my attention more than with the HP-A8. If you have an opportunity, maybe compare side-by-side or look at 3rd party alternatives.
I've settled with the Invicta-> customised ZD(SE variant) for my TH-900's.
Sennheiser HDVD800 cost more than Fostex HP-A8.
Those that have tried the HDVD800 agreed that the in-built DAC doesn't do justice to the amp, while HP-A8 has the other way round
