we'll see how sennheiser replies on monday / next week....I reckon then can just factory reset it in Germany, which will mean no HD800s for a week or 2.

Does anyone know when the official balanced cables are coming out for the hd800's?

post #1641 of 2367

The official balanced cable is already out. I've had mine for a couple months now.

Would you be so kind and guide me to the link?

I don't know where you live, so I don't know which regional store would be relevant. I'm in the EU, so Custom Cable is one alternative there. As for the US I'm not too familiar with the sites that would stock it.

At £250 or USD$400, this is one expensive investment. Unless it is worth the coins

still no mail back from sennheiser, expected their customer service to be a bit faster...

post #1646 of 2367

Im in the US. I emailed sennheiser and they told me that they didnt get it yet. Once they get it, they told me they would email me right away.

I bought the HDVD800/HD800 combo earlier this year. Never had any decent equipment before and was totally blown away by it - after many many many hours I'm still amazed by it.

 

I have a question about the HDVD800 XLR-3 analog outputs on the rear. Is the output fixed volume or is it controlled by the volume control on the front?

 

I'm sorry if this is a stupid question but I want to buy a power amp (which has no volume control) and feed it with the HDVD800. This is a temporary setup, I will buy another preamp eventually when I decide exactly what I want but it would be great if I could use the HDVD800 until then.

 

Cheers,

 

Rob.

The outputs are fixed volume, so unfortunately you won't be able to use the HDVD 800 as a preamp.

Thank you for your quick reply.

 

BTW I was just reading your HDVD800 review. I was initially disappointed to read you didn't rate the DAC, to me it all sounds good but then I have no reference. Then it suddenly occurred to me -  what, this can sound better! So when looking for a preamp (it has to have a DAC) I'll try to find something I can feed into the HDVD800 analogue inputs to compare.

Thank you TheManko. Indeed these cables are now readily available and we can get them to the states if they are hard to get over there, just to help out a fellow Head-Fier.
