First post here and pretty new to headphone world. Currently using sennheiser hd202 which don't seem too bad to me for the money but ready to upgrade now.
I am in a slightly unique position though. I live out in the Australian bush 600kms from nearest town so have to buy the next set based on reviews over the internet without return policies as mail takes too long to reach and go back.
I like the look of the Sennheiser HD 600 and will ultimately be powering them with a Peachtree Nova amp, which has a pretty decent headphone amp integrated. However, The Peachtree is waiting for me in Sydney and I won't be able to get there for 6 months.
So question is will a Mac mini be able to power the HD600s? I realise of course they will not flatter them or sound top notch but will they sound ok for the next 6 months? If anybody actually has this set up and can give their views, that would be amazing.
I could wait and stick with my HD202s for now but I'm impatient when it comes to new toys and 6 months is a long time. So I would like to use them now, but at the same time I want to get the best I can for my money and the HD600s sound like a good bet.
Hope this all makes sense.
Decisions, decisions! Any thoughts / experiences greatly appreciated!
