Thanks for the picture ! What are your thoughts about the amp with the hd800 ?  Thanks

post #18 of 131

I'm loving it with the HD800's, drives them really well. Soundstage seems even wider with this amp and I'm picking up loads of new detail on familiar recordings. Possibly the best amp I've used with them yet, and I've tried a few! Doesn't have a warm sound really, but it's certainly not bright either, pretty neutral I'd say.

 

I nearly bought the Trilogy 933 amp,  but glad I didn't because this is more than half the price and sounds just as good IMO. Build is excellent, really solid and the silver is a perfect match for my Cyrus kit bigsmile_face.gif

 

Great deal from Audio Oasis here in the UK.

Until I read this, I too was considering buying a Trilogy 933. Did you do an A/B comparison with the Pathos? Also, has anyone compared the Pathos to the Icon HP8 MkII SE? 

post #20 of 131

I did. Certainly not worth paying that much more for the Trilogy amp. Soundstage on the Pathos was a little wider, which is probably down to the tubes. The Aurium is a bargain IMO.

I couldn't resist this anyway. I have the Pathos on order and should hopefully be using it sometime next week!

Looking forward to hearing your comments.

Yes, looking forward to trying this. I wonder what the matching DAC is like?

Nice amp.

How does this amp compare to the Schitt Lyr ?  As this amp is x3 in price with a similar circuit, would like to know how they compare ?

post #25 of 131
Unfortunately I did not have the Lyr around to compare the two, and in fact had not had the Lyr in a long enough time that I cannot offer any real guidance there. Both fine amplifiers, to be sure.

And how does it compare to a WA6-SE? The good thing about this amp is that it's way easier for me to buy than a WA6-SE. Like the looks as well.

post #27 of 131
Not as warm sounding as the WA6-SE, and has a larger soundstage I reckon. Better looking too, IMO!
post #28 of 131

And perhaps a comparison with the Icon Audio HP8 MK2?

post #29 of 131
I'm thinking about giving this amp a go with my Audeze LCD-XC. Any further impressions?

 If you do give it a try with the LCD-XC I'd be interested in how you find the pairing, as I'm thinking about the Audeze's myself and will be using them with the Aurium.
