if you are shopping for a solid state amp that has great synergy with hd 800 and has tube amp qualities look no further. it is built like a tank, is heavy like a tank and looks much better in person than on pictures. and while not cheap,it is still a bargain a bargain for the performance it delivers. it also has tons of power. it never work very hard.

 

it also get hot, but I have seen much worse. far much worse...

Every person on this planet needs to listen to Radiohead's Street Spirit (Fade Out) on the HD800s at least once in their life.

The entire album is just stunning on the 800s!! Love it!

Yep-their greatest hits album is probably the easiest for me to leave on in the background without needing to change songs because of some glaring weakness in the recording...same with Brothers in Arms. Street Spirit is just purely mesmerizing on the Senns though-my fave song by far to show of their sound staging and brilliant treble and atmosphere. Brilliant stuff.

Even with loads of dynamic compression, Nigel Godrich still managed to produce an excellent sounding album.

Edit: Does anyone know how to get a copy of the uncompressed stems?
