Thanks for the link. I like the case too and my custom 3.5mm cable will easily fit In there. Nice portability.

I'm still curious. Has anyone been able to compare SE vs balanced on the AD's? Does it gain much by having it balanced?

 

Cheers

Anyone know any good portable amps that would go OK with the ADs?

My RX Mk1 does a decent job with my Alpha Dog, if you are on a budget.

Otherwise, the Centrance M8 is famous for its power and netrual sound signature.

I"m also using an ALO product--The International--with my AD's and I'm pleased with the match-up for portable.  I'd recommend auditioning them together if possible.

I've owned the SE AD and compared against a friends balanced AD's. When they are volume matched I could not pick them apart TBH.

I had a rare hour to spend with my AD's last night, and put on a FLAC copy of "Lay it Down" by the Cowboy Junkies, standard Redbook spec.  Halfway through the first song, I realized that none of my open cans, even the Hifiman's, ever sounded this good to me.  I admit, the Uber and Soloist are huge variables in this. Regardless, the AD's had a a depth and a soundstage that trump any cans I've had over the years.

Glad to hear that you're enjoying them so much. Is that track from Trinity Revisted?

Naah.  That's the album.  I don't have Revisited, but I do have the original Trinity.  Hopefully tonight I will have a chance to listen to it...

Ordered, and will be here on Friday.  Gotta love Amazon Prime.

 

The Alpha's are seeming more and more like a possible endgame headphone to me.  I would love to read other impressions, especially from those with flagship headphones.

Hifiman HE-560 is going to have velour topped pleather pads.  Why can't that happen to the Alpha Pads.........Dan?  I would hate to think that I won't be able to listen to the Alpha Dogs through the hot sweaty summer?

i often test equipment using trinity sessions...Margo's voice lends itself to that. I actually don't have revisited, but that might be rectified real soon smily_headphones1.gif

You won't regret that one. Great music, expertly recorded and just a magic night. If you want to hear wonderfully deep and textured bass...this is the recording.
