For Sale or Trade:
Balanced Headphone System : Headroom BUDA/UDAC/DPS (with optional balanced Sennheiser HD600)

Will Ship To: Anywhere

For sale is my main headphone system.

 

- You get the Headroom Balanced Ultra Desktop Amplifier, the Headroom Ultra Desktop DAC, the Headroom Desktop Power Supply, all in perfect condition - even the boxes look new. :) You'll get one of those all time great systems, a system that drives the HE6 (11Watts into 32ohms), works well with both the HD800 and the LCD2 and has bulletproof build quality.

The system is made of: BUDA, UDAC, DPS, 1x Astrodyne PSU, DiMarzio XLR Interconnects, 2x DIN cables for the DPS, three original boxes. This is 1350€. 

 

For an extra 150€ (1500€ total) you get:

- The Sennheiser HD600 is the original high quality headphone and for it's price there's still nothing that can touch it today. IMO if you're into headphones you need to keep a HD600 around, whatever else you might have. This HD600 has minimal paint chipping on the headband sides (a known wear & tear problem) and comes with a balanced HD650 cable with Neutrik XLR's and a balanced to single ended adapter made with the end of the HD650 cable. and the same female Neutrik XLR's.

 

Please don't send me offers for the HD600 - it's only available as an extra to the Headroom Triple Stack.

 

I will add better pictures eventually, just ask for them if they're not yet there. I consider the price more than fair for what you get  - it's well under half the EU price. The buyer pays for shipping and any fees.

 

The only trades I'd consider are: a japanese sourced Fostex HP-A8 + 1000€, a NAD M3 + 300€ or a straight swap with a NAD M25 - that's for the whole 1500€ system.

Free bump, as I have almost the same setup and it's amazing :)

Bumps don't work on headfi but thanks anyway. :)

 

I had many other headphone systems but I always got back to Headroom. They clearly "get" headphones, I have to say. They get excitement, rhythm, punch, lack of harshness without lack of detail. The HD600 sounds for the lack of a better word, balanced in this system. The best I've ever heard it.

Well of course Headroom "gets it" -- weren't they the ones to come up with the balanced setup idea 5 years ago?

 

And my setup isn't exactly the same; Headroom Ultra Desktop DAC + Headroom Ultra Desktop Amp (unbalanced) + Headroom Desktop Balaced Amp (non-Ultra)... dunno how much the power supply you have helps the sound. Does the Desktop Power Supply help a lot with the sound? I'm not familiar with the DPS but I have the upgraded Astrodyne power supplies...

They don't "get it" because they came up with the first balanced headphone amp, they "get it" because they have good audio designers. Each of their products from top to bottom has that same rightness built in, doesn't matter if it's balanced or not. As you go up the range you get more transparency, more detail, wider/deeper soundstage (especially balanced) but the basic formula stays the same. And as far as I hear it's the right formula for headphones.

 

The DPS is worth it (mandatory even) for the BUDA/UDAC system. I had a Balanced Desktop with Home DAC and Home Module before but I didn't have a DPS then so I can't say if it's worth it for that. Headroom says you gain more with the DPS when you come up to the Ultra DAC/AMP level, balanced or not.
