About planars + speaker amps synergy, I will testify, especially for HE500/LCD2. I used to think this was a bunch of bull cr..p, too until I heard it for the first time.
Do you know if it'd be an improvement over my objective 2? I noticed sometimes at higher volumes it clips, as if the amp just can't power them.
I've heard the emotiva is a tiny bit warmer as well? I think I'd like that quite a bit. I should be able to buy it in the next few days, I'll make sure to let you know ASAP. I'm currently waiting on a transaction to go through, then I'll have the money.
( Don't wait up on me if you do get an offer, I'm totally alright with that)
