Hi I'm your basic noob, hoping to get some help on something that has got me thinking for a while.
I have a Senn HD-570 that I bought to use for my PC and for late night DVD watching. I use a Hercules Game Theater XP for my PC sound card and a Denon AVR-1801 receiver to power my Energy speakers.
When I use the HD-570s for either PC or Denon unit, I always seem to have to crank up the volume. When I use the headphones in the Denon receiver, I have to disable my home theater speakers. Shouldn't this allow for more power to the headphones?
Thanks in advance for the responses. I hate to lurk and post, asking for help, but it's starting to get on my nerves!
I'm not sure exactly what you're asking... But, if you're asking if disabling the speaker outputs on your Denon receiver will improve the performance or power of the Denon's headphone output, I believe the answer is no. The Denon probably has a separate amplifier for the headphones that won't be affected by the speaker outputs.
On my denon receiver I have to disable the main speakers in order for the headphones to work. Don't know why Denon decided to do that, but the reason why I use headphones over my Energy speakers is to keep the g/f from complaining when I am up late watching anime.
How do the Sony MDR-V6 compare to the Senn HD-570? I am thinking about getting an extra set of cans for my g/f so she can listen to music late at night when she studies.
