Yup, same quandry here. I'm planning on getting a Philips X1 (easy to drive), an AKG 712 pro (requires a good amount of juice) and maybe a pair of HE-500's down the line. Any opinions please on whether it may better to go for the cleaner, more detailed and natural sounding Sabre based 11.32; or to go for the warmer more musical Wolfson unit given the choice of headphones above? No particular music style of choice, with some movies and gaming thrown in the mix too.
I can always add an external amp at a later date to change the flavour if needed. Thank you for any replies.
