Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread - Page 550

post #8236 of 8240

Thanks, @Zojokkeli, I appreciate the response.  The Bakoon HDA-5210mk3 sounds like a very nice amp.  And seems to pair well with the TH900.  I looked it up and found a review on Headhonia.com.  I didn't read every paragraph, but got an idea for what it is, since I couldn't find it on the Bakoon website.  Says it's made in Japan and hard to find, too.  Where did you get yours if I may ask?

Thank you for all of the replies, everyone. Taking the advice, I was able to track down my dad's old Kenwood KA-3500 speaker amp. After opening it up and cleaning it out (as well as I dared without risking breaking anything), I hooked it up, switched "Loudness" on, and turn off the +9db bass boost I'd been using. Holy crap! Minor static during volume adjustment and a bit of background hiss aside, this thing's really giving some new life to my Fostex. It has what I'd say is a warmer sound, and gobs of bass. I'm very impressed, though I think that it lacks some amount of the precision found in the Asgard 2. If only someone made a modern version of this receiver!

 

Again, I really appreciate the thoughts on this. I'll have to think about my next step, be it optimizing my current hardware, or pursuing something new.

I bought mine used from a fellow head-fi member, but you can find Bakoon products on Ebay.
