    With 2 amps actually in the same time:

    1) Solid State: Beyerdynamic A2
    2) Tube: Feliks Audio Elise MK2

    Because A2 has a great feature of Input 1 is hard looped to Output and works even if A2 is turned off, I "cascaded" both amps and I listen to each one depending on mood, to both or even to 3 headphones at the same time. What else can you dream of? And yes, Qutest is making them sound great.

    Auralic Taurus MKII. High power, high resolution, very spacious with excellent depth, very transparent. Doing all of this without being cold or boring. Completely allows Qutest's brilliance to shine through.

    That sounds like a great idea! Are you noticing no effect on sq when you have both on at same time ?

    My Icon has a loop out that works even when it is off but I never tried to use it.
    So if I m getting this right you re taking the signal from Qutest in to the line in of your amo and then connecting the loop out to the second amp ?

    And to the original question, I add a bit of extra “magic” to my Qutest with valves all the way , Icon Audio HP8 and Luxman SQ-N100 whose headphone out sounds absolutely brilliant with my Sennheisers!

    Using a Leben CS300XS with the Qutest
    An unapologetically musical pairing; beautiful vocals yet so so clear sounding

    Yes, the output of the Qutest goes to Input 1 of A2 and the output of A2 to the Input of Elise. I have not observed any sound degradation. The loop works even if A2 is unplugged from AC.

  10. A simple JDS Labs Atom. I have a THX 789 on order. Honestly the Atom is pretty spectacular.

    Lyr 3 or LP
    THX AAA789 will be delivered in May
     
  14. Baten
    LP is objectively the better one of both. Also Lyr has some freak occurrences of frying headphones, I'd err on the side of caution

    That Taurus is a great looking amp. I am using my Qutest with the Questyle 600i which you too have had. How would you compare the sound from the two headphone amps? Thanks!
