Best AMP & SOURCE for AudioTechnica ATH-W3000ANV & Balanced version ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

OK guys, you convinced me... I just bought on SON&VIDEO my ATH-W3000ANV  L3000.gif    Looking forward receiving it !

 

At home I will use it with the new DAC/AMP from RedWineAudio.  Vinnie from RedWineAudio confirmed that it will be a very good match (he uses it himself).

 

But... for my portable use (OK OK not in the subway... but during Week-end) I need a good source.

 

I was wondering if the  iBasso DX100 will be OK ? Will it have a good synergy with the ATH-W3000 ?   I know the DX100 is a very good DAP, but I read somewhere here that it does not pair very well with the ATH-W3000 ?!

 

Alternatively, I can wait for the Centrance Hifi-M8  DAC/AMP and use it with a SAMSUNG S3 (with special firmware to support 24/192 mHz).  

 

And.. last question : Has someone tried re-wiring the ATH-W3000 with BALANCED cable/plug (RedWineAudio DAC/AMP offer Single Ended AND Balanced output) ?    Or has someone just re-wired it SE with higher quality SE cabling ?   does it make sense and offer better sound ?

Yes - do you see the 4-pin XLR?

Did you re-câbled it yourself or you had it done ? By who ?

And, ... How does this change the sound signature ? Is it à real improvement V/S the SE version ?
