Good point. People balk at digital volume controls, but many of the better ones can give substantial attenuation with no loss of resolution. Even poor ones should be fine with a modest cut of maybe 10dB, which will give some more usable range on the CMA800R.

Thanks a lot for the reply guys! The CMA 800i is on my wish list since I heard the HD 800 pairing at the Nashville meet a little while back. It really impressed me so i was wondering how/if they would pair with the TH 900. Your responses helped a lot so thanks!

You're welcome! I think the CMA800i is a fantastic buy, 80% of the goodness of the individual DAC and amp units for something like half the cost. I think for HD800 users I'd happily recommend that as a very good end-to-end 'end-game' HD800 rig (bearing in mind that when I say 'end-game', what I mean by that is that one could happily rest there without ever 'needing' to upgrade if one desired to).

I just purchased the HD800 again collecting tomorrow, look forward to hearing it in my current rig.
