When compared to the O2/ODAC, but of course!

Maybe you could take all your experience and help out this guy http://www.head-fi.org/t/653834/why-do-hd800-headphones-sounded-weak-when-hook-up-to-an-ipod

 

The two of you would make a nice couple.

 

Why? I have never planned to use iPod or anything portable with HD800... I could buy IEMs for that.

I've never compared buttons on O2 and on Audio GD... But my O2/ODAC at least look unanimously, all-black. It's not the best-looking amp/DAC but I consider it really fine.

Wow... Didn't get the joke/point did you?

I was also unaware a better looking dac/amp will give you better detail. Hmm... Jokes aside, I'm going to put my money down on the fact that the more expensive amps get, the better aesthetically they get since that extra money is getting put towards R&D for aesthetics... meaning the less you spend, the less you should expect.

Not sure how much it costs, but going off Europe available gear, have you tried the V200/V800 combo? Supposed to sound nice with HD800.

I think 2000USD together... This is a Benchmark DAC2 area and unfortuntely way too much for me. =/

Do you have any problem with my requirements? By the way, the only amp/DAC offering (mentioned here so far) that I don't find pretty enough for the price is the Audio GD stuff... That's all.

Is it not cheaper since you are in Europe?
post #720 of 25749

You're going to have one requirement that's not going to be met on every suggestion below $1000. Maybe it's time to make compromises.
