    Denon AH-D9200 - 2018 Flagship - Impressions Thread

    Matt from Forza sent me my balanced output adapter for the Focal Arche. I managed to level up again. There is a wider sound stage now. I wish some of you guys could experience how my 9200 sounds on my set-up.

    I was cleaning my headphones today and wiping the earcups with the Denon supplied cloth. By the time I finished wiping the left cup it fell in my lap. It popped back in quite easily but I have to say the D2000 and D5000 were a pain to remove. This one clicks off with the lightest touch.

    Connecting the 9200 to a proper NAD DAC will surprise many. I was smitten when I brought the 9200 home and gave it a run on my Home Setup. In hindsight, I don't think I should have done that. It made me sad every time I would hook the 9200 to the Topping. So I ended up buying the Focal Arche...

    How to start the new year ? Enjoy a nice audio session while you talk to Matt from Forza to make you a new adapter so you finally use the balanced output on your Arche. For the time being, this works 😊.

    Nice to see you finally got your pair. Good first impressions as well. They have a tendency to get better and then ... you get used to the sound :). I see you are in the Canary Islands. Once this lockdown thing ends, I plan to take the lady in the area for some sun. Seen Lanzarote and Grand...

    Would be interesting to see but don't you think the eggheads designing the 9200 tried this? :)

    @crinacle As soon as the lockdown allows it, I will hunt for quite a few headphones you tested. It gives me a chance to get out of the house but also to see if I find something I did not consider. Regarding you keeping to yourself, I understand you have to tread lightly. In my view you should...

    Thanks for taking the time. Better to clarify than lead to a misunderstanding. Sadly, some are a bit more vocal than others when it comes to this passion. I want to thank you for posting that ranking. I can imagine it took some work and gives people something to digest. You also gave the...

    I would be grateful if you can clarify what was toxic about my post. I still posit that your rating of said headphone does not impact me or my enjoyment of the 9200. I get it, you need to attract attention and get the ball running. It is part of today's approach to present opinions. Nothing...

    What I like about the community in this thread is that they do not feel the need to go out there and bash others. As audiophiles we respect each other's preference. Once you reach a certain level of maturity with your gear you are immune to these pointless crusades. For example : Film vs...

    Focal Arche: Anyone compared to other options in its price range?

    I am confused by the term “sound card” here. What does this mean ? I mean the moment you hook the Arche to your machine and make use of its DAC+AMP capabilities and listen to music / game you have a “sound card use”?

    So much activity in this thread in my absence. I ain't complaining as this thread needs to be number one across the nation. I hope everyone is safe and getting ready for the holidays ... in one way or another. My Sunday was very productive. Been having a nice audio session with the Topping to...
