    Sennheiser HD800 S Impressions Thread (read first post for summary)

    This !! Completely true. I would stay away from brighter headphone amplifiers. The Rupert Neve amp is a good one.

    Sennheiser HD800 S Impressions Thread (read first post for summary)

    They are completely different . the 650 has a dark warmer sound ,though it still has decent resolution. Not my cup of tea. The Hd800s is brighter , has better resolution and the soundstage is wider ,deeper and much more satisfying than the closed in sound of the 650. I'll say the 800s is also...

    Well that stinks. I hope mine lasts longer than that. It really does look like quality leather .

    Got my 2020 R6 yesterday. The backplate is not assembled properly. Musicteck as always is replacing the unit promptly . What a great company to do business with.

    That can happen with a lot of things. The interference even from dimmer lights with speakers is a real pain.

    Hardly . I have plenty of amps and speakers that well exceed that price . But it’s a DAP!!! Ridiculous .

    My files I loaded on my sd card have all the artowork embedded in each file and Mango picked up maybe 5 % of the artwork. Wow. Awful. USB Audio player picks it all up.

    I agree, My dx300 which i just recently received sounds better than my more expensive Astell and kern Sp1000M which costs more. My only gripe with the DX300 is i wish they downsized it a little more

    The ibasso dx300 sounds better than my AK Sp1000M . I just wish they made it a little smaller .

    We will have to disagree on this one . It is not a low subtle pop .

    It’s a fairly loud pop before a MQA track plays

    Detail is improved on R6 2020 . I feel dynamics are better on R6 Pro . If you are using Tidal a lot like I do , you will get a lot of pop noises at the beginning of MQA tracks . If you have playlists like I do which mix MQA and regular 16/44 , expect to hear pops when you get to the MQA track .

    I can give you my guesstimate . I have an R6 pro and tried the 2020 R6 with a Dan Clark Aeon RT Closed and went to medium gain on R6 and it did not seem as powerful as the R6 Pro , never tried high gain on 2020 R6 though. The Dan Clark’s are quite difficult to drive

    I returned it and bought a Ibasso dx300 which doesnt have that problem. By the way, the R6 2020 sounded very good and I was impressed by its overall design but I can't handle this pop before every MQA track.

    So how could this be a software defect with MQA when many dacs and DAPS can unfold MQA without the popping?

    What micro sd card format is best with ibasso daps? Planning on using a 1tb Sandisk card

    I have several other devices , including an Astell and Kern that can unfold MQA and they don’t have the popping issue
