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

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

I like the Senn amp very much, but the problem is I kept feeling like the BHA-1 is actually the more detailed amp. I know it's a bright amp, but it seems that I have no problem with bright sound sig. The Mjolnir, being a much cheaper alternative, intrigues me.

Congrats whirlwind! Look forward to some impressions, especially compared to the RS1 with the Mad Ear.  I personally find Grado's to be a nice change and compliment to the Senn's.
