    After searching still need some input

    A little back ground. I have the Senn HD650 and the Beyer DT880. Like the sound of the Beyer's more. They just sound a lot more clear.. However they lack low end for me. In any case both just didn't hit the mark for me. As it would stand I would look to get the T1 but the price is out of reach...

    Perfect AMP for my HD598 under $300 ? (Bravo or HIFIMAN EF-2A or FIIO E17 or HRT or Bellari HA540)

    Hi guys ... I am enjoying my Sennheiser HD598 and for someone who uses them mostly run out of my computer (with an old, cheap soundcard) I just want to see if I can get better and louder sound using a AMP under $300.   So far I narrowed it down to these.     Bravo ...

    B&W P3 Initial Impressions

    Hi all,   I thought I would share my first impressions and experience with this headphone. :) I will only concentrate on the sound part, since everyone knows how well built and comfortable they are (or can be... for me they are really comfortable).   First off, let me tell you that if you're...

    First Amp Recommendations Bellari HA-540 Schiit Vali or Creek OBH11

    I am new to the headphone game but very much enjoy my music. I have a pair of Grado SR60i's and would like to pair them with a nice amp and I like the thought of the warm tube sound with my Grado's. I listen to mostly digital music at the moment but plan to move to Vinyl in the future. At this...

    Not What I Expected

    Greetings all,   Recently bought a Rolls Bellari HA540 and AKG Q701's.  So I heard how crappy the stock tubes were and thought I would try a NOS tube.  So I bought a nice well balanced Telefunken 12AX7.  Tried it tonight and must say I am underwhelmed.  I can barely hear any difference...

    Advice for a first-time amp customer?

    Hello all. I'm looking to buy a mid budget amp ($150-250) for my AKG K702. The source is a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium (non-HD version), and later a Creative Sound Blaster ZxR. I'm currently quite satisfied with my setup on its own, but would like something to extend the bass a bit...

    Replacement AC Adapter for Bellari HA540 headphone amp

    I just bought a second hand Bellari headphone amp off the bay. The item looks pretty much new, but the seller told me the old AC adapter had intermittent power issues. I jiggled the ac adapter around and it does seem to have a rattle like there is something loose inside.   The seller sent me...

    Matrix M-stage vs Bellario HA540

    So...it's tube vs SS.   What would you choose for use with several different headphones of different sound signatures and impedances, fed by Musical Fidelity M1DAC?   It's a must for me to be able to adjust the sound signature of the amp, so that's why I want to be able to change either...

    Bellari HA540 is not good at all..

    After a few weeks with this amp I am not happy at all. I am going through headphones right now trying to find the ones for me. I was running some Beyer T90's tonight that I just got and thought that these cans were really bright but very detailed. I plugged in my Senn HD650 and the harsh highs...

    Bellari tube help

    Can anyone help with a tube change on my Bellari HA540. I want to smooth out the top in a touch. It's a little harsh in my opinion. Wanted to know what tube would give it a little smoother sound but keep it very detailed and not loose a lot of the gain that the stock tube has. Don't want to...

    Cable for HD650 change anything????

    I am not a big believer in cables for my Hifi two channel stuff. I have a lot of gear and I have never heard a difference when I tried some hi end cables. Connects or speaker cable. Now I am new to headphones. Have tried a few mid to hi end cans and it looks like for now the Senn HD650 is the...

    Need a stronger amp than my Bellari HA540

    I just got into headphones as of late. Been into my Hifi stuff for a long time and and have a lot of quality gear. In any case I got the Bellari HA540 and it doesn't seem to drive my Beyer DT880 enough. Can any one advise me on another amp that is a good and won't break the bank. Would love to...

    I really don't know what to do!

    I have bought some shure SRH840 headphones. To my understanding they do not NEED to be amped but they can benifit from it. And also, I'm sure I'll need one later on. My question is what would you recommend? It will most likely be attached to an Ipod touch 4th generation. Price, well... thats the...

    Do Tube amps give "tube" sound - and rec for SR225is

    Hi all.  I am somewhat of a newbie.  Here’s my questions.  Hope you can help.   I grew up in the 70’s.  I remember my father had a tube amped stereo he built in the 60’s.  Great mellow sound.  In my teens I acquired my own hi-fi equipment.   Of course, everything was solid state.  I remember...
