    Yeah, problems with the old version start with android devices.

    Has anyone ever tested the AKG K712 Pro with the R2R 11 ? I would like to know how they work together.

    take this with a grain of salt but Ive never heard ATH AD2000s sound better than thru R2R-11...theres just this magic synergy going on.

    The AD2000s and K712s are kinda similar in voicing and specs....

    Why do You say salt? There has to be a 'but' coming.......

    Reason I ask is because I have an R2R 11 on order and curious has to how it's going to power my Audeze LCD cans.

    Lcd2?3? X? Curious about it if you don't have an LCDX as I'm interested in the new lcd2c

    Interested on the lcd2 driven by r2r11.
    What else amp do you have?

    I cannot say atm. I just ordered the headphones. Should be here early next week.
    I'm running Schiit Mjolnir 2 for an amp and will run the dac for the R2R ( once it gets here ) to the MJ2 as a stand alone dac.

    Obviously give a try to the r2r11 full package and let we know about your thoughts about it :wink:
    Have a good night/day, it's 3.24am here ihihih

    Of course I will try both amps. I am also in search of a semi portable / portable amp / dac amp that I can use at work. My true intentions of the R2R 11 are to of course test as a stand alone unit and also with the MJ2, but over all I was going to bring it to work to keep on my desk to power a semi portable set of cans. I guess it depends how the performance is and how the R2R 11 sounds after some testing. Never know. You might see my Schiit Mjolnir 2 job for sale. Then you will have your answer.

    Semi portable, how about this one?

    I found that your comment interesting about ATH-AD2000, so much so that I decided to give a researched about it, but you were referring to the original version or the X version ?

    Can you elaborate a little bit more on that magic synergy? How does it compliment the AD2000 (open model I suppose) sound? I'm deciding between K712 or paying 200€ more por the AD2000 (just cause I really liked AD900 when I tried them for the first time) so you could be very helpful to me.

    Original.My gear is listed in my signature.

    I would highly suggest researching prior to buying.Its one of the more polarizing headphones because of its lack of sub-bass and difficulty to amp correctly.
    Here is a good review to read,author is the one who turned me onto them.If you do decide to get a pair,theyre quite rare,although I did see a pair recently for a steal of a price on another website I cannot mention here...sorry.

    They kind of have a planar-like speed to them,ultra fast.The R2R-11 gives them the widest staging Ive ever heard and fleshes out the mid bass quite nicely without bloating it.Needless to say my AD2000s have been getting quite a bit of head time lately.

    What about the X version, did you already test it ? Is it a good pairing with R2R 11 ?
