Those are great prices!  The problem is it is a link to somewhere else (kakaku.com), and I can't read Japanese triportsad.gif

Can I get back to you later tonight about the TH-600 vs SigDJ? Picking up my DJs later today...the same demos I did the review last year so quite broken in.

This is a comparison I'm very much interested in, can't wait to read your impressions.

Sorry...live raw notes.


Headphone DAC/Amp: Fostex HP-A8

iTunes via Audirvana+ 1.4.6: integer mode 2

Both Headphones using 1/4" jacks

 

Spanish Harlem - Rebecca Pidgeon (16/44.1 FLAC)

TH-600 seems to sound wider, whilst SigDJ seems more closed but deeper imaging, & taller sound stage.

SigDJ vocals has a more intimate whilst the TH-600 seems more set-back. By this I mean positioning from the listener (not talking about mid forwardness/recess-ness).

The SigDJ's S-Logic makes some instruments sound to come from behind the listener, whilst the TH-600, it feels more like sitting on row 5.

TH-600 has more distinct instrument separation

 

Through The Eyes Of Love - Sarah Morgann (16/44.1 FLAC)

Again, with the SigDJ's S-Logic, I feel I'm on the stage with artist and pianist performing, whilst with the TH-600 it's more taking from an audience's position.

The SigDJ's more closed proximity to the performance makes it easier to hear the detail, but with the TH-600 it feels more natural and laid back.

 

Climax - Usher (16/44.1 FLAC)

SigDJ's bass...wow. Trebles are also more forward and airy but not sibilant. More engaging on the SigDJ. The TH-600 feels too refined for whilst the SigDJ feels more engaging with its all S-Logic imaging. Usher feels more "hip" with SigDJ. The TH-600 has more of attending a sophisticated black tie concert but no one's allowed to jump up 'n down to dance.

 

Want U Back - Cher Lloyd

SigDJ's closed but "all around you" soundstage actually feels more engaging again in comparison to the TH-600. Same Usher's Climax, the TH-600 feels a little too refined for this kind of fast fun genre.

 

Star Wars Main Theme - John Williams (16/44.1 FLAC)

The tables have turned again. The TH-600 feels rich, spacious with a large orchestra to breath. The instrument separation helps here. The SigDJ feels too closed for this kind of presentation.

 

Don't Stop Believin' - Journey (DSD DSF 2.8MHz)

The TH-600's larger soundstage again seems to let this kind of rock to breath more nicely. The SigDJ actually felt more 2D-ish which surprised me. I did reseat the headphones on my ears properly for the S-Logic positioning but no improvement.

 

This is what I've got so far. Apologies for the brief notes.

Thanks for the quick notes AnakChan.

To be honest, I didn't expect the SigDJ to perform that well. I know I wrote an impression of it last year in November, and I've had the TH-600 for the past month this year and thought the TH-600 will easily best the SigDJ's.

 

Today I actually picked up the very same SigDJ I reviewed last year (so it's kinda well burnt in) and thought the TH-600 would best the SigDJ in every way and in every genre. Instead I'm surprised that there were areas where the SigDJ wasn't so easily beaten.

post #432 of 2104

Agreed, that's pretty impressive, thanks AnakChan. I only have a problem with the Signature DJ's color scheme, and would prefer the matte black like the Sig Pro's.

BTW, just when I thought the TH-600 couldn't get any better. Tell ya what, this amp isn't even really warmed up yet and it's making me think I need to re-evaluate my impressions of the TH-600!!
