Well, it wasn't about the treble. It was just that overall presentation sounded more wide and bit more distant. I still loved it that way to. And by mod, you mean the anax mod? I love them as they are stock, but I haven't heard the modded one yet.

 

But I was surprised that UHA-6S could drive HD800 with ease.

Hmm yeah, it is laid back in that sense. The UERMs are more intimate and upfront. Yes, anax 2.0. Once you hear it, it is quite an improvement in the midrange to treble transition. 

 

The HD800s aren't hard to drive, they're just picky. UHA-6s does work fairly well though for a portable, and the Vali is a great budget amp. Of course the HD800s scale really well too!

 

/Sigh this snowstorm in NY better not delay my emotiva dac -_-

Hmm... how can I get a HD800?

Used HD800 is around $1000...

If I sell all my gears besides main ones...

SRH940: $150

KEF M500: $200

FXZ200: $200

HD598: $130

That's $680. Damn it.

So sell more.

AK10: $200

Voxoa HD Wireless: $50

That's $930. I can manage to spend $70 extra.

 

Anyone willing to buy everything from me? :p

I mean, the prices I listed are really good. If anyone actually wants to buy them from me, actually PM me. I seriously am going to collect some good money for a nice high end hp. I feel like I've seen the end of the iem world(or pretty close to it).

Whoo. I changed my dreams a little. HD800 might be a push. Why not settle with SRH1540? Now I'm looking for SRH1540.

I am starting to feel convinced that the old CDP sounds on par if not better then AK100. WTF? Out of LO, the sound is very smooth and coherent. The bass impact is very good. Interesting. Same music, same CD quality file, but my CDP+UHA-6S seems to sound more fluid...

Not sure if 20th century technology is having a backflow or the CDP you have is of really high end and cost more than the AK100 back then xD

Lol. My ears say I want something different from reference signature. And that cdp was a mid-fi decent one made in japan. Pretty good. The amp though... the amp is more powerful powerful then AK100 while remaining dead silent all time.
