I will agree with you that the H10 is a value for the money amp but everyone here talks endlessly about how great it is, especially with low impedance planar magnetic headphones. Also I didn't have much a choice with the amp in this case. I got a really good deal on a site called massdrop where I got the LCD-X with the H10 and I ended up getting the H10 for free sooo it was tough to pass up. And I'm just going to hope that my experience with the X's differs from your 2's. But I am looking forward to learning about your testing new amps
You've previously mentioned knowing nothing about audio. This kind of suggests that you also lack experience with audio (hifi) gear. So, if that's the case, I doubt that your experience, with the Audeze phones, will mimic mine; I'm sure that you'll be very happy, and will feel that there's nothing missing. I'm just saying, that despite much adoration, the amp is not perfect, and that other amps will reproduce a noticeably more resolved treble, than the H10.
Although, one user has just reported (on the other thread) a marked improvement with the treble, by swapping op-amps.
Whatever, I'm sure that you'll have plenty of fun and the H10 is an excellent starting point, for planar 'phone amp experimentation, especially if it's for free.
