Or DAC to sound it's best. Tube amps less.
So maybe it's not all warmed up.
That's funny - I'm a fairly new owner of HD800's and that's the exact sentiment that I was expressing to a friend today. With the right recording - like Donald Fagen's "Morph The Cat" - they sound fantastic. Other times, not so much. Definitely very picky. I've definitely been perusing the thread for possible new amps. I think I see one in my future!
A microwave oven warms them up in just 30 seconds.
How true. [I learned this after a long series of experimentation. Now, I just submit to it. My HD800 sounds better after the WA6-SE has been given at least 15 minutes to warm up.]
That's why the first thing I do when I get home from work is switch the amp /dac on, then I kiss the wife & kids
You must be a good kisser then because your wife doesn't need time to warm up after your kiss.
anyone got any very good results powering HD800 form a headphone jack of any integrated amp?
my integrated which I was using to power my 2 way speakers died, so rather than looking at more dedicated headphones amps looking for a great integrated amp that can kill 2 birds with one stone if possible? not sure when teh schiit ragnarok comes out but looking for something along those lines.
