Eximus DP-1

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Has anyone else tried the Eximus DP-1 DAC/Headphone amp.Superb detail and soundstage.A bit expensive but absolutely magic with Sennheiser HD800`s

I sold my Violectric V200 because I liked the bigger soundstage of the Eximus. Nice match for my HD800`s. Even better with the IFI iUSB power supply (and Gemini cable).

I use my Eximus with an older Audio Research CD3 as a transport and bought a toxic-cable from the UK to replace the stock Sennheiser cable.Bit of a waiting list for that but should be here later this month.Evidently makes a big improvement to the HD 800`s

I also have great results with my HD800/DP-1. I sold my Auditor because I felt it didn't really do anything greater than the built in HO of the DP-1 other than portray a larger soundstage-but at times seemed unnatural with certain sounds sounding wonky and out of place. I felt the clarity and detail was roughly the same, with a tiny edge going to the SPL. That said-I still pair my modded m-Stage with the Eximus to add a little more warmth, bass, and body, at the small expense of some detail and clarity imo. Nothing compared to my DP-1 ZDSE combo though...not even close.

Could you compare it to, say, Burson Conductor? or HDVD800? I listen to trance and classic via HD800. I like the sound of the Conductor, but that DP-1 review from 6moons always make me think I should hear it, but in Barcelona there's none!! mad.gif

Sorry, I haven't heard either of those amps. I'd venture they both add a bit more 'body' based on my reading, but with the ZDSE/Eximus  the HD800 lacked pretty much...nothing.

Burson C. is a bit "brutal".
