At that price and even twice that price the hpa8 is a fine amp that drives th900 beautifully. I'm not sure the knock is worth it and really you don't need a 7 grand amp to run the things. The hpa8 192 32 bit 4x sampling is sweet to my ears and have no interest in chasing any dragon.

HP-A8's DAC section is fine. It's no Reimyo, but I prefer it's signature compared to other DACs with built-in headphone out in that price-range (Mytek, Lavry, Benchmark). Amp section I was less impressed with. Wished Fostex released a DAC only at a lower price.

Did you end up listening to that Bakoon or am I imagining things again?

I drive it using my Pioneer QX9900 (circa 1973-74) and it is sublime!

You're not imaging things. The Bakoon rep & I were exchanging e-mails early Feb on sending me some stuff for me to listen to but he never got back to me after I gave him my address :P!? Well I think he's a legit Bakoon rep. I'll drop him a reminder mail.

Listened to my 900s thru the Woo Audio Wa2 amp this weekend and it was the worst I had ever heard the 900s sound. I would highly recommend staying away from that amp if you plan to pair it with the 900s

Not suprising, as the WA2 is OTL tube amp, primarily designed for high-impedance can like HD800 or T1.

Cheapest place to buy them by far...and at that price they are actually competitively priced.


Has anyone ordered these from Amazon Japan?  How secure is their shipping/packaging?

You'll love the Conductor and TH-900. One of those combinations that makes it difficult to take the headphones off.
