O2 AMP + ODAC - Page 182

post #2716 of 2718
You know. You can nit pick all you like but the O2 with the Sennheiser HD600's is phenomenal. I'm sitting here listening to ZZ. Top. All the grunge and distortion that the band intend is all there but it is like the crust on a pie. The O2 lifts the lid so that you get all the lovely juicy bits inside. smily_headphones1.gif and all for under£400! Crazy.

A.

No problem, it 'd be boring if everyone was in perfect agreement all the time.

 

About the amping and the powering of headphones, the best non-sound analogy I can think of would be those limited power versions of motorcycles that people who are not yet 24/don't have their license for a sufficiently long time yet can purchase/ride with.  Sure, they run.  But the second you can pull the plugs out and have full power available they're something different.  

 

I know it's far from a perfect analogy and stipulate that the degree to which this will manifest itself differs but you catch the meaning.

 

Will take a look at that J River player again tomorrow, indeed a crapload of option menus to wade through

JRiver is good. It's not pretty but it's good. A big plus - for me - is that it allows remote control via various devices.
