Rig Improvement Suggestions welcome!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello fellow Listeners,

 

I am looking to improve my System and would welcome any suggestions:

 

I am running the following Chain:

 

Iphone 4 + Fostex HP-P1 + Sennheiser HD 650

 

Most likely I should invest in a stronger amp? I like warm, "soft" Sound perhaps less analytic but more "tubey".

 

Thank you for your Input!

What do you want to improve?

 

More/better bass? More/better treble? More/better mids? Bigger soundstage?

 

There are plenty of threads here for amp recommendations for the HD650 if you want to keep them, try the search function :)

 

Edit: Yes, you will have to get a stronger amp to make the HD650 sing.

Thanks for reply,

 

yes i like deep powerful but dry bass and soft creamy highs....

 

i think i can Bypass the amp section of the fostex and just use it as a DAC.

 

I could spare around 500$ for an amp and it shall use Tubes;)

 

Keep it coming:)

"With both the HD650 and the HD800, the Crack delivers one of the cleanest sound, the blackest background, the widest and deepest soundstage I’ve heard on any amp below the $1K mark." - Headfonia Mike
