Amp recommendations for Fostex TH900? - Page 16

post #226 of 237

As an HP a8 listener, whats value for money? I mean 25 buck I phone ear bud is that. When in doubt spend, thats my motto, period. If its too much, you might be on the right track, then again i dont have stax or abyss either. cheers.

The TH900's looks extremely appealing but I'm surprised there are only two references to pairing them with the the Woo WA7 in a rather lengthy thread.  One comment reflected that the 900's were too bright (surprising but appreciate the input as I've not tried by WA7 with the Fostex's) and the second was that it's good...I think???

 

Is there anyone that can comment on the TH900 / Woo WA7 combo based on direct experience?  

 

I really enjoy the Woo.  I have upgraded tubes for it (Electro Harmonix gold tips) and after many many hours of listening, haven't even bothered rolling them as I find it so pleasing as is.  

 

Thanks in advance to anyone that can comment on their personal experience.

Yea I just finished the thread recently so feel free to ask me if you have any questions via pm.

**I have heard the combo myself at a recent audio show.

You're in UAE? I'm in Dubai - just picked up a Resonessence Herus from Singapore. I also have a Sony PHA-1 and an AudioQuest Dragonfly - notice mostly portable stuff, given that I travel quite a bit.

 

if you want to audition them, drop me a PM, I work in the Dubai Media City area ;)

Schitts Asgard 2   249 USD

Buson Soloist      1000 USD

Burson Soloist SL  600 USD

Auralic Taurus      1700 USD

Fostex HPA A8C  1500 USD

 

any direction will be greatfully recieved 


Try the Resonessence Herus. Just picked up one, and paired with with the Effect Audio USB interconnect. Sounded pretty damn good, though bordering on bright at times. Insane detail, sound stage, and really brings the TH900 to life

I really don't like Burson amps with TH900, but for HD800 I like it.
Burson makes TH900 too muddy imo, I prefer more neutral amps like Oppo.

Maybe Taurus/A8C will be a better choice than Burson.

I've heard the Taurus with the TH900 and it sounds great.

So let's put it all over the map then and have a vote for hpa8. Pretty true, maybe a tinch wet, and lets through a question out in reverse. How does hd800 sound on hpa8? Anyone?
