Looking to get into planar magnetics. 

 

Wondering if the amp internal to the HP-P1 has enough muscle to drive the HiFiMANs adequately.  I've searched but found no answers to this question so figured I'd put it out there to the head-fi community.

 

Thanks in advance for your thoughts and experiences with this DAC/Amp working with the orthos.  Just for fun I'm adding a poll, but I'm really interested in the commentary.

I'm also very curious about how good the amp is, I'm pretty sure volume wise yes but don't know about sq

Well, the HP-P1 is a hair bass heavy and a tad treble light. I would think it'll be pretty nice with the brightish HE-500. I use it with my Pro 900's and it's great. It won't take the HE-500 to desktop setup bass but it should be pretty damn good.

500s and a speaker amp.

The portables can drive the 500s very well indeed. I was surprised.
