I plan to purchase the HDVA 600 amp to drive my new HD800 cans. I also plan to drive my low-impedance Audeze X/XC cans with this amp. I have heard (especially from alrainbow :-)) that the Senn amp drives the Audeze cans very well. Looking forward to my (mid-December) experience.
Now for an interconnect question. Consider the setup: MacBook Pro --> Schiit Gungnir DAC --> HDVA 600 --> HP. If I connect the DAC to the amp with XLR cables, can I drive unbalanced HP's coming out of the amp?? Instead, if I connect the DAC to the amp with RCA cables, am I giving up sound quality? Finally, if I use balanced XLR from the DAC to the amp to the HP, is that the best sound possible? Net - what can I connect unbalanced vs. balanced or are there limitations to the connections? That may be a goofy question, but hey you know I'm a goofy guy.
