That Taboo does look pretty, although I think it looks a lot like the Bottlehead Crack with some cherry stain.

There are two Lucid modes and they are amazing on the HD800's!

Could get the version with the white crown molding on it. eek.gif

 Not that I didn't trust what I'd read, but holy revealing headphone Batman. Some recordings sound amazing and others sound so horrid I can't even listen to them and that's on a Lyr/Bifrost... So glad I'm going to buy a better DAC/AMP so that I can become even more particular frown.gif I've almost hit rock bottom me thinks. /end sarcasm/

I'm sure you'll tough it out.

It's practically unbearable!

 

 I'm thinking either the AudioGD SA-1.32 or the X-Sabre for a DAC. And am interested in the Firestone Audio Bobby (per Project86) or a balanced M^3...

Wow at this thread. It's good to see an HD800 resurgence, with more members echoing what some of us have been stating for some time. There's a lot of noise to wade through now though. The original HD800 thread was much more civilised.

 

Anyone else reminded of googleli when reading RustA's posts? They're like twins, but at extreme ends of the spectrum.

Haha, yes I thought this thread was done for too. Amazingly what can happen in a few short hours. biggrin.gif

Rust wasn't busting out the K-01 references though...

But...I thought the ODAC was virtually the same as the K-01?  I am so confused...evil_smiley.gif

Geez, you all just cant let it go?

 

Objective vs. subjective...nobody wins or loses that one. Ever.

 

Can we move on and talk about the HD 800? I'll have mine on Monday and I'll be driving them with a Squeezebox Touch connected to my 1985 Carver Receiver via analog RCA.

 

No outboard DAC, no dedicated headphone amp. Just sweet music biggrin.gif

Steve Deckert of Decware and my HD800's with the Prototype of the new Decware Taboo MK III in the Decware lab.

 

 

 

Yes, that is another amp hanging on the wall...biggrin.gif

 Wait you're not technically even qualified to talk until Monday, and you're trying to moderate this madness??? confused.gif

 

 

 

J/K

 

The analog outs of the SBT is no slouch in it's price range-I'm sure you'll be more than happy with that starter rig. evil_smiley.gif
