Prep, when are the impressions coming?

post #122 of 1100

Man it's a hole process I got to go through before I get these things up and running.  

 

1.  Order the Headphones

2.  Order the cable from Norse cable

3.  Get both in at the same time.

4.  Send them both to my installer.

 

Whew..

What's a good portable amp to go pair it with?

I continue to enjoy these W3000ANV's, they are just so musical and coherent. My HD800 is getting lonely as its been getting no attention lately.

Portable amps aren't good with these headphones, and you wouldn't want to bring these out in case you scratch them.

Wow that photo...I love the white background, quite a contrast to the colors of the W3k :D

What amps are at the back by the way?

How does the B22 sound with these?! I thought they're designed for high impedance headphones o.O

The βeta-22 is designed for a wide range of headphones with the right gain set on it.  I have mine set at 8X gain.  Works well with just about all the headphones I have except the ATH-AD2000.  I don't know about these yet, still have to get them cabled.

This is true, and I think the B22 would be stellar with the W3K. That soundstage combined with those lush mids... The three-board B22 in my signature is set to a gain of 5, which would be perfect. It is completely adjustable to drive anything you have in your headphone stable.

Interesting, I would expect the ATH to sound better with their more "magical" sounding amps.

I'm never going to buy one of their magical amps for its exclusive use. I'm not that kray kray, even if I have 2 pairs.
