Sweet! Congratulations.  This is on my short list of amps for the HD800. Let us know how it is.

Shahrose used to post about it constantly here as well.

Problem is that it is a difficult build requiring custom off board heat sinks. Thus, no commercial builders. Certain components were also discontinued, but I understand there are now substitutes that work with the revamped boards. I'm sitting on all the hard to source parts for the older version but feel like I need a couple more real projects under my belt before giving this monster a go - starting with the wire, which at least one mot reportedly prefers to a dynahi (although I tend to doubt I will be in that camp).

 

The Super Symmetry Dynahi use on board heat sinks.  Also it's said to be the best Solid State amp ever used with the HD800.   Although, KG also said it was overkill for the HD800.  A little overkill never hurt.  

 

I'm hoping the have the GS-X mk2 and the susy D-hi side by side in the future.

Thks. I'll keep the Vali in order to have a comparison point ;)

There are some nights I just can't handle the HD800, I seem to find something wrong which is generally they sound too thin.  Other times, just perfect like tonight.

Is it just me trying to justify a new amp :veryevil: or do others have the same experience?

post #9116 of 24378

That's why I have several different headphones, need to switch it up sometimes. Oh and a few different amps also...

post #9117 of 24378

You're not helping the cause! :D  I hear ya.. I switch over to the RS1i when I want a dirty, gritty and super fun sound.  For really well recorded stuff, nothing beats the HD800.. (well, almost nothing)

Nice!  I'll be looking forward to your impressions and comparison!

 

I had totally forgotten that the new SUSY dynahi has on board heat sinks.  That's really a game changer.  The most prudent move for me is probably to just stick the old boards in the closet and go that route.  The lack of complication in case work and not having to locate and invest in heat sinks and L brackets will certainly make up for any lost/sunk costs I eat.  I can't help eyeing the new proto susy dynalo mk2 as well and, for that matter, the krell klone.  There are just too many good options in diy right now.  Love having those sorts of first world problems :)

Same for me, I find it really frustrating . It always reminds me how our moods etc play such a massive part in our perception. Same amp, same headphones , same album yet some days it sounds perfect and others it sounds garbage!

Oh it's totally true. I love my HD 800 and it's on my head every night, but there are still those times I'm grabbing the HD 600 because that's what I'm feeling at the time.
