Best,

The R10 is slightly overrated due to rarity and prestige. If it was produced today I don't think it would command a price significantly higher than the W3000 or TH-900; it's certainly not superior to the latter at a technical level.

I miss my W3000 and regret selling them. I actually used to run them from the same setup as you (assuming you're using the Peachtree Nova).

 

So, I used to have it with the Peachtree Nova as DAC + amp.  It works well, but it has little space.  On the Nova alone, I prefer the W1000X.

 

Then I added the Aune T1 as source, using the Nova only as amp.  This combo is really good.  The W3000 get mores space and shines.

 

Recently I got the Svetlana 2.  Now, the W3000 sounds really insanely awesome, even from different sources. :-)

 

I'll post impressions on the W3000 + Svetlana soon.

Yep, it was your posts or a pm early on that pushed me over the edge to get these,  i think in relation to the Ed8 or Dx1000. I am so glad i did.  At the time i picked them up for just under a thousand with free shipping.  What a steal for the magnificent phones.

Anyone has come across the W3000ANV/Chord HUGO combo? If so, how is the sound impression, comparing with Yamamoto HA-02, Sventlana 2 or any other amps you've experienced?

It's definitely perfect for me, the Svetlana W3k combo. I've been guilty of not coming back for months because I've found headphone nirvana.

Back to sell my Smyth Realiser lol. I feel like I've been skiving lol.

No, I made it up tongue.gif

Yes. Really. I also sold the JVC DX-1000. I liked the 3000ANV better than either.

Dethroning a couple of the older closed flagships is no small feat.  Three closed headphones enter, only one survives to stay in Skylab's collection!

yeah that r10 is legendary. does the w3000anv sound similar?
post #879 of 1157
No, not exactly similar...the R10 has better bass weight. But I actually liked the W3000ANV's mids better.

post #881 of 1157

try it with V200 amp ..:wink_face:

post #884 of 1157
That's what makes it a perfect match with either the Leben or my vintage Pioneer receiver - very well executed bass boost when needed/desired biggrin.gif

And finally with the correct source , the W3000 can sounding loud. extraordinary immersive headphone for me.
