Same here Buddha.

I use what's in my sig for the HD800(just got the decware yesterday) I think I have found my endgame rig. The only weak link $$ wise is the zdac, but I honestly can't find anything wrong with it without being nitpicky, but I could do that with the amp and headphones too. It's an excellent dac.

To me the HD800 is a perfect headphone, but it does need the right amp. The headphone out of the zdac is pretty lackluster for the HD800, but the CSP3 is a great pairing even with the cheap Valve Art 274B. I can't imagine what this is going to sound like with a Mullard GZ37...

Yeah,  it should sound great with the HD800....looks real nice there too.

 

This was one of the few amps that I was interested in.

It does.

I don't have as much experience as most here with amp/dac/headphone combos, so my comparisons are limited, but I do like it quite a bit better that my DT880(600 ohm) and Crack combo I had. 

Been listening to it for 4 hours straight today and I'm not fatigued at all. I could go another 4 lol...

Was just now bobbing my head to the music and enjoying it. Haven't done enough of that. Liking the headphones.
