A week ago i got myself 702 65th Annies and listen through my dac2.. well, to get more or less good volume i need to turn the knob to 3 o'clock.. while for my audio technica ath-m50s 10 o'clock is pretty loud. i guess the Benchmark is just not powerful enough to drive those akg's?
and the sound, while i admit is very clean, undistorted and natural, seems just too distant.. i find m50 are far more enjoyable for listening.. put you closer to music and also more emotional. maybe i need to educate myself to enjoy the more sofisticated and true sound of AKG?
any help woul be appreciated!
