No worries about offending me with your opinions man. I can handle the truth, and know that more experienced head-fi'ers may have a completely different take on a particular piece of gear. I welcome differing opinions as a way to learn and a "free education".
In fact, I wouldn't mind hearing your "unfiltered" thoughts, especially in regards to the headphone amp section, as I have NO prior experience with headphone amps, and don't honestly know if it's any good or not. I like it with my easy to drive headphones, but that is only in comparison to an ipod or my computers built in sound card. I doubt it would have been too difficult to surpass either one. LOL!
this whole hobby is very subjective, so we all have different taste, i wasn't thinking you were taking exception to what i was saying, i was just meaning, for me, compared to the wadia, i preferred the wadia, cpmpared to the wadia's headphone out, with my lcd's, the sound was flat, it wasn't dynamic, no slam ! lol, i actually went to emotiva, i live a little over an hour away from there, and the guy i bought my headphones from , lives near there.
one of the guys there said i'd need an external amp for the lcd's, their amp just doesn't have the current that the lcd's like.
now when i used a headphone amp, and used the wadia, the bifrost, and the dc-1 just as dacs, they were all very close, they are all so good, i think it just comes down to which "sound" i preferred , and someone else might prefer another, and both of us are right ! lol
