Pan Am can be warm or neutral depending on the tube you use. For the HD 650, mullards and voshkod tubes are the way to go. The HD 650 has an excellent pairing with the pan am.

I think their CDM is the successor.Honestly, I still think that pan am is better for harder to drive headphones than the CDM.

My passport battery is now only lasting 45 minutes frown.gif. Any ideas on how to replace the battery pack within the passport case?

The Pan Am is a very clean and detailed amp for being a tube amp, I have used it as both a DAC/ Amp and as a dedicated amp to another higher quality DAC. Now with particular tubes it does get a warmer signature, but from the the Mullards I had and if I recall correctly it was neutral with slight warmth, a nice midrange, and detailed but musical. I think it is a great all in one unit if you can find one on sale or used it is definitely worth having, As far as HD650s, I am not a 100% how they sound with them but they sounded very good with my HD600, so it should drive it to adequate levels.

Thanks! Just got mine for only $290.00. Really satisfied with how well it sounds. 😊 I'm using siemens and RTC. The mullards and voskhods are on its way.
