    Philips Fidelio X3

    Dang, if the X3's are lacking in dynamics then that's a deal breaker for me because dynamics and PRaT are what I value most in music playback equipment. The thing that I like most about the X2's is their dynamics, but like I've said their excess treble energy fatigues me after a while. Hopefully...

    Philips Fidelio X3

    Yep, he was somewhat vague on sound quality. But I do appreciate his review.

    Philips Fidelio X3

    Thanks for clarifying. I've got a pair of Sivga Phoenix cans on order, and if those don't work out then I'll probably order up a pair of X3's.

    OTL or not OTL (That's the question)

    There are great sounding examples of both transformer and OTL amps available on the market, so I wouldn't get too hung up about it. I also wouldn't get too hung up on whether an OTL amp will cook your headphones - although I'm sure it has at some point happened, I can't recall anyone ever...

    Solid State or Hybrid Amp for Denon D2000?

    Although I haven't personally heard any of the amps that you have listed in your post, in general I really really like hybrid headamps (tube input/solid state output), and if I were in the market for a new headamp that's the direction I would go.

    wooaudio 3, 3+, 6 ?

    Quote: Originally Posted by jamato8 The 3 don't have higher or lower quality parts, just different. The 3+ has an inductor giving a stiffer supply to the tubes and is tube output. The 6 has transformers for the output. Both have a single power tube for the output. The 3 is also a...

    Is the WooAudio 3+ with HD650 too laid-back for rock/electronic?

    Quote: Originally Posted by Gradofan2 Here ya go... just get a pair and "check 'em out." You can always return them if you don't like them... but... you will! Much better than the "old version" of the HD650s. You can get them from B&H, or J&R, for around $325, usually. You just...

    WooAudio 3+ vs WooAudio 3?

    Quote: Originally Posted by jamato8 You are only going so much from the output tube of the 3. The + version adds the inductor, which stiffens the power supply and should reduce the ripple, which will improve sound quality. The paralleling of the 6DE7 is something I did a long time ago...

    WooAudio 3+ vs WooAudio 3?

    Quote: Originally Posted by Golden Monkey .... or especially want to try something like the AKG K701, then the 3+ is the one for you. It's my understanding that the major difference between the 3 and the 3+ is that the 3+'s input tubes are run in parallel for more power and...
