Could someone compare the vocal presentation of the Alpha Dog to the SRH1540?

By Monday we should have shipped all orders to October 16.  We're back to a 6 week lead time...

The only person that I know for sure who has heard both is Mike Ting of Headfonia, who heard both at the same Tokyo meet.  You can post that question on the Q&A page of headfonia.com

I know two people who have them. First one is gelocks and he promised will write a review of Shure SRH 1540 and comparison to other headphones such as Beyer T5p, Alpha Dog, ... Another one who has Alpha Dog and other high-end headphones but I do not remember his nick, however you can look back to this thread or Shure 1540 thread to find his comments.

Hello guys.

 

I'm enjoyably waiting the AD. maybe it will come before the Christmas. Nowadays I'm looking for DAC, but It's hard to find which DAC is good matching with the AD. (or HD800). 

 

Can you recommend the DAC? or has anyone use Yulong DA8 or Naim V1 with the AD? How is it?

I tried Alpha Dogs demo pair with DacMagic Plus and I like it plus I really love my DacMagic Plus / S.E.X. combo driving my HD800 connected to speakers taps. This is my end game home setup

An FYI, it looks good for upgrades to start in January.  

post #4211 of 7588

Woo Hoo!!

post #4212 of 7588

I just sent a test email to everyone on the list with a status update. 

post #4213 of 7588

Woot! Just got my official confirmation email that my name is indeed on the upgrade list. This doesn't mean that upgrades are starting yet. Dan is a tease.

Congrats.  Listening to my pair as well right now.  Sunday afternoon acoustic guitar tracks on the Alpha Dog with some tubes.  A special combo to my ears.  

 

Lots of different DAC possibilities depending on price range and how many features you want.  I currently use the USB input only Ciunas DAC which I put up there with my previous DACs like the W4S DAC-2, Anedio D2, Cypherlabs Solo -dB, etc.  DAC rolling is too expensive so I'm not going to get around to trying different DACs with the Alpha Dog.  If I was in the market for a new DAC I wouldn't search based on the criteria that it pairs well with the Alpha Dog.  A good DAC should be good with any headphone.  Maybe others will disagree.  I'd focus more on the amp end of the things with the Alpha Dog.

Definitely agree (in fact this is a current discussion in another thread, lol).

 

A better DAC is going to reveal more of the recording (resolve more details).  This is also the major strong point of the Alpha Dog, so the difference between the Mad Dog and the Alpha Dog will be more apparent with a better DAC.

 

( And certainly anything like a DA8 would quality as a better DAC in this context. )
