It still always best to try it before committing though (at meet or shop demo).

This phone is picky with amp, source and transport.

Something like LCD-X is easier.

After listening to the HD800 you can't listen to any other headphones, for me it's the realism of the sound that is the most important thing, it's mind blowing.
With other other headphones you feel like listening to recorded music, with HD800 it's like you are hearing just the sound, it's just there... it's hard to explain.

Are you talking about transparency?

Plus 1 on the hdvd800. I own one the amp is tops really top shelf the dac is ok but really needs a better dac to show off. I have a AP1/PP. it GREWTLY improves the dac. But it's still a little thin .

I am not really sure the concept behind the ap1/2/pp but do you think its better to get ap/pp than a separate dedicated dac for hdvd800?

There is right answer it's about money.
The ap1/pp. does make the hdvd800 a good dac it greatly improves the clarity.
But getting a better dac like the Hugo is way above it. So a separate dac is a choice to be made

I would assume its better to get a separate superior DAC + hdvd600 (unless you already have the hdvd800)

What about the DacMagic Plus? Does it make for a good dac pairing with HD800?

It's not bad, pretty impressive for the price.

After owning the hd800 for over a year I feel if it's mixed good it will sound good on it.

Can you give me an example of a TOTL HP where it will sound good even if mixed bad.

+1 Infected Mushroom is really lit up with HD800. 

I'd say only too stereo-ish (i mean non-binaural) rock is a bit unbearable for me through these cans.
