The answer lies in many places , Within the chain and sometimes the recording.
I am not saying we all should spend mega bucks on devices to make them shine. A little EQ can make most rigs sound much better. Regarding tube amps , they are the most Versatel and also the most difficult to get correct. As tubes are great I think it is much Easer to just buy a proven amp. And the myth of the tubes warms them up a bit is bull. EQ is a far better way to warm them up on what ever music we are using at that time. The above info is not a rant and just my own personnel view on the HD800.

Sorry-I need a limerick or haiku to decifer this. Pretty please.

This is so true.... That blanket impression of tubes has become an urban myth.

Yes, just like the assumption that SS is normally bright, thin and harsh.

 

Both myths are of a bygone age.

LOL and no spell check :biggrin: but I guess that contributes to the entertainment factor - it's like tube rolling ;).

In the pics above I am playing around . Going from the two different dacs both input with the AES. from the offramp.

It's a close race both pretty good I think the M7 is a little warmer of neutral , and maybe a deeper bass overall because of it . Now the HDVD 800 AES input seems a little more detailed and more separation of the details. Just food for thought and only doing the AES INPUT S

Of course spell check is on in my iPad. It's just the damn English language has too many words that seem ok but wrong meaning.
