I'm driving the ADs balanced with a HiFiM8 and balanced with a HM-901. Both have more than enough headroom for the balanced AD in my opinion. And both sound wonderfully neutral with just the right amount of bass IMO from the Alpha Dogs.I was a little worried because I really like the bass impact of my Denons but the Alpha Dogs do bass just right. At least for the acoustic and contemporary jazz I listen to.
I LOVE using the AD's with my HiFi-M8 via 4-pin XLR (iDevice version) Though I've been meaning to write @mgoodman - OFF TOPIC - but I don't hear changes in the ohm switch in balanced mode - only via 1/4" and 3.5mm - and a few of us heard this -
But that's a terrific pairing!
I also rock it w/ my AK120 - or my E.A.R HP4 - that sounds SWEET!
After continuing to be wow'd by em, I'm psyched I remembered to give the AD's
a Writers Choice Award at Positive Feedback.
I had some fools ask - "how could you give awards to the LCD-XC AND the Alpha Dogs??
I don't think I need to explain it - as I love BOTH
and w/ the ALO Island!!
