    Denon 2000, confused with amp/dac info

    I used to think the denon's did not need an amp until I got the Fiio 5. I know its not the best amp or even close but with it I notice a difference with the denons. They sound smoother and more satifying.    This is the part I don't get, denon's freq are 5~45k.. yet on this forum people seem...

    Portable Amp For Audio Technica ATH-M50

    Hi guys,   I have the ATH-M50 and I love them a lot. They sound great, but do I need a portable amp for them? If I do get one, would the Fiio E5/E6 amp be a good choice?   Thanks,   LazBro123

    Shure se215 amped

    Hi I was wondering if anyone has amped their se215's.  I am considering fio e11 or e5, and was wondering if amping them makes a difference.  I listen to dubstep so I am mostly looking for a difference on the bass side of things. Thank you!

    Using 2 amps at once

    I got the Ultrasone Dj1 headphones (HFI-580) and un-amped they have okay bass, but they truly have so much impact when amped. I am a basshead when it comes to watching movies and playing games. Therefor I bought a Fiio E5, which was lousy... it had buzz lowered treble, but none the less...

    "Driving" headphones

    I was under the impression that impedence is what determines how hard it is to drive headphones. My friend just bought sennheiser HD595, I'm going for denon d2000, and in the future I might go for either D7000 or Audeze LCD2. the 595 have a 50 ohm impedance, the d2000 have like 30 i believe. The...
