See-now were getting somewhere! OTOH-maybe you just don't like the HD800s either. OTOH (3 hands here, Total Recall-style), it isn't so much liking the HD800 as it is liking the entire chain-they will reveal EVERYTHNG. Properly amped, of course. ;) That Conductor is definitely the surest bet for an all-in-one that can do both the HD800 and Audezes justice though-NOT and easy feat! Can't wait for your updated impressions. Would be inteesting to hear your thoughts of the Grace dac feeding the Conductor as well. If you prefer that-you might as well get a Burson Soloist to pair with the m903-unless you insist on an all in one. Fun times ahead for you-either way!
Definitely will be interesting. It's going to take a hell of a quality improvement to get me to move away from the convenience of the T5P. I think as of right now I can say I would choose the T5P out of the rMBP over everything I've tried out of the m903 (by cost-to-benefit ratio). The LCD-3 will come Monday and I'll overnight the Burson so it will be here Tuesday. I really wish I could have gotten some TH900s here in time to get in on the action as another closed pair.
Question...do people pronounce "Audeze" like odd-eez or like oddysey?
