do you think the rear XLR->HD800 sounds better than the front headphone out? That makes the internal amp useless with HD800...
How is the bass, does it have enough "weight" compared to the front HP-out?
The front headphone out may slightly
have more weight or warmth. Using the rear xlr for the HD800 is a much more refined sound imo, bass is cleaner and accurate with a very open sound
presentation. I felt the the front jack was boring in comparison to the rear, but this only applies to the HD800 alone. With some of my other headphones, the front did just fine.
On that note, Ive been spending some time on my brother's burson soloist with the da8 and do like it a lot. In fact, I like it so much that Im starting to think I like neutrality more than a warm signature.
I also have another project in the stir. Looks like Ill be pairing the DA8 with the bottlehead S.E.X fully upgraded with a few mods. Ill post more info soon Edited by DarKen23 - 10/13/13 at 4:19pm
