Completely diffent animals for starters. The woo wa7 is nice amp and dac however it hides or glazes over the details in a nice way. The hdvd800 is very detailed and at first seems overly bright or detailed. So it's what you want as sound , analytical or more reserved easy listening. Also the notes are a little thin with the hdvd800 bit if you use a ap1 /pp it's improves it dramictslly . Ask me what you wish I owned both and still,have the hdvd800

Keep,this mind the amp in the hdvd800 is very good but the DAC is ok. As oppo ,s DAC might be better.

Just using the DacMagic actually doesn't sound bad. Lacking a bit of dynamics and punch, but still nice to listen to.

Ill be auditioning a sennheiser HD800 - should be here next week.  I currently own a LCD-x .

This will be interesting .

It will,be your ears and brain will be in for a evolution of new sounding media . The HD 800 is close to a stax 009. But does have more meat then the stax. Another can to hear is the he6. As it too is really good but needs a powerful amp to use with .

Would like to hear your impressions between the two.  The LCD-X is on the top of my audition/lust list.

Any one here think the gungnir is a nice DAC pairing with HD800? - I would be using a tube amp with this combo - WA2 or DNA stratus.

 

 

I was planing on getting a higher spec DAC but I don't wanna skip the rungs on the ladder. I think I will go for something in the 1000 dollar range so i can appreciate the upgrade when i eventually go for an end game DAC. I might see if I can audition a few around this price range. I would like something that looks nice under the DNA Stratus - I was looking at the gungnir because of the similarity in width. Is there anything else out there that is around 16 or 17" and sounds good?

i might also audition the HE=6 ,i just need to know how to hook it up to my sophia el34 amp thru the speaker out . anyone here that can help me with this?

 

my gear :: oppo105 to play flac files and dsd files / nad m51 for flac files from oppo 105 --> decware csp2+ -->  alo studio six 

 

the sophia el34 is being used in my speaker set up - it might work for the HE-6
