Since I can't set up a "full-size" system right now, I've turned to headphones as an alternative for great audio. I've had a pair of Sennheiser HD580s for a while, I've got some very good DACs, and now I'm looking for a big bang-for-the-buck amplifier.
Meanwhile, I have some questions about bass boost and crossfeed. These are new to me entering the world of head fi. I've read about it, I get it. How important are these things? How necessary? I've certainly not had issue with bass performance from my Sennheisers or the Grados I've used. Imaging and soundstage. Yeah. I can get this one more easily. Listening to binaural recordings (which are especially prevalent, particularly with the music I like to listen to most) through headphones, yeah, wow, the spacial information is amazing. Simply amazing. More conventional recordings can kinda work okay. In a great two channel system, soundstage and imaging can also be highly compellingly palpable. It's important to an extraordinary musical experience for me. What do folks have to say about this?
