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 :D

You must be a good kisser then because your wife doesn't need time to warm up after your kiss.

Anyone did compare the schiit vali and the DNA Sonett or Sonett 2 ? I have To wait a few weeks before getting my new toy. The vali sounds far less tubey than my mg head & and i would know where is the Sonett between the two.

+1 - Turn the system on right after work and run music.  By the time I get to it an hour or two later, ready to rock'n'roll.

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.

I kiss the audio gear and turn on the wife. Music sounds better after.

So, an update on the wavy screens.

 

I had a very prompt and helpful reply from Rosmadi to my PM. He explained, having contacted the production manager, that due to the process of hand assembly some HD 800's could have wavy screens and others not. He very kindly offered to organise a replacement pair for me if I wished, but it's not something that bothers me as long as mine aren't the only pair like it, and it seems, from the many responses here, that's the case.

 

I decided in the end just to keep the pair I have and enjoy them! Here's the graph!

I have a Sonett and borrowed a Vali last night and plan to tune in and out over the weekend.

I'm looking forward to having your impressions. :popcorn:  

 

I'm extensively listening to music with the Vali + REGA DAC + HD800 combo these last days while my reference combo is my REGA+MG Head.

That sounds like the perfect entry level HD800 setup, how are you liking it?
