It really depends on your preferences. Any of the flagships should be considered. That is, don't ask others and experience things for yourself.

I might contest the Senn 600 is more pleasing sometimes, but the 800 is tough to beat.

Glad to see anoher one who likes the HD600/650. People keep underestimating them IMHO.... :rolleyes:

 

My HD650 sounds fantastic with my Anedio D1 and Sonett. I'm thinking about picking up a pair of HD600 again, I had a pair a long time ago. Compared to HD800 they're great for a little bit more casual listening or poor recordings.

 

But yes.... Audeze, T1, HD800, HE-6, probably the new Oppo... they're all great. Just different tastes really.

 

I prefer my HD650 to the Audeze headphones... some people probably think I'm crazy but hey like I said. Personal tastes.

I respect that, and its nice that you can say it and not get slatted for it. I really miss my hd650

TT600R: Incredible huh! I also really like Lucky, Idioteque, 2+2=5 and Fake Plastic Trees. These particularly sound quite amazing on the HD800s imo. I honestly was never that big of a fan of RH until I heard them on the Senns-just really brings out every layered nuance that these guys produced.

Best of albums are tweaked/compressed even more in mastering to level out.
post #10644 of 24297

Not sure if you're talking generalities here? Because the Best Of RH songs sound definitely better than the ones on OK Computer-enough that I never really went back...

 

Same thing with Pear Jam's Rearview Mirror best of album-but most of those were remixed for a big improvement anyway. Listening to Ten is just weak in comparison imo.

Hey fellow audiophiles, 

 

I know there are countless threads on this topic, some outdated, but I am looking for a recommendation for a high value solid state amp, preferably within the 600-1000$ range for my HD800s. Tube rolling my Lyr has become too expensive, and lets face it, all those beautiful tubes will be gone soon or insanely expensive with the ever growing popularity of this hobby. I know the range I'm asking for is a far cry from an end game setup but I appreciate your input.

My vote and what I use us the hdvd600.
Find a used one and maybe it will fit your budget.
It is the best choice in my opinion.

I wish hdvd800 drops to $1000 so I can afford one wink.gif

Waiting....

Maybe you can give the Chord Hugo a shot at ~ $1,600. You get an amp with enough power to drive the HD800 beautifully plus a world class dac that can rival others costing 3X +. Coming off my desktop setup with ALO SS and Mass Kobo 394, I don't feel losing much when I pair the HD800 with the Hugo on the go.

I currently want to try and hold onto the Bifrost and upgrade that at a later date. Do you think the HDVA 600 will work well with it?
