Decided to pull the trigger on a V200. Heard it pairs well with the HD800's... we shall see!

What DAC will you be using?

 My Bifrost until I hear how the new Matrix X-Sabre is. Most likely I will be going with the Concero though...

 At the moment it comes down to cost. I'm almost tapped out for buying myself 'toys'. Need to throw the brakes on a bit. I've already bought 3 $1000+ headphones and well over $1000 in gear in the past two months. My toy 'fund' is almost depleted! frown.gif

I'd go for Concero for V200 since you don't need balanced.

The V200 sounds better into a balanced source if you have the opportunity to ppick up a source with a XLR input it sounds really good with the v200. iuse it balanced with my Oppo BDP95

And this is where I'm most conflicted when it comes to a DAC. The Concero seems like a great value. But I do want balanced source... Hopefully the Bifrost doesn't completely suck w/ the V200 so I can start depositing more money into the toy fund.

I don tuse dac so i can say but the Oppo BDP95 IMO sounds best with a balanced inout form the amp. I think my Taboo MK111 going single ended also sound good through the V200 so its really a matte of what your system need most. The XLR interconnects are also more money. I use King Cobra by audioquesrt and they are 250.00 meter but I bought these as new ones for about 125.00 and they are excellent cables.

I purchased one from the FS section and just got it a few days ago. Man, these sure complement the D7000s well ! Next purchase shall be a V200 for my two babies biggrin.gif

If you need balanced output, the Matrix X-Sabre features a similar but slightly improved sound signature as the Concero (same family of Sabre chip) and features more inputs.
