Hi folks: I’ve recently acquired a 780d V1 upgraded with the Mind2 to supplement my 430had (was using internal DAC prior).
I am still using the HD800s and Grado PS1000e I started out with and appreciate the somewhat “larger” sound of the 780d but things are starting to sound a little too bright to my ears (actually painfully bright and thin/analytical) and I’m unable to listen much as a result: not what you want.
I’m willing to change any aspect of my system: any pointers? Perhaps a warmer fuller headphone? The Empyrean or LCD4z? Perhaps a warmer amp or different DAC?
Suggestions welcome. I’m based in SoCal (LA) and need to start attending local events, too, in order to increase my exposure to different gear.
