My current setup I finally just switched over to using the Pass X150.5 speaker amp to drive the Susvaras and I've been ecstatic with it so far!

They really don't work that well with headphones anyway. I tried for years and found no matter how I placed them between my ears and the headphones, I couldn't hear anything. And the price or quality of the headphones didn't even matter. It was so frustrating :D
Between ears and headphones??!!??
You’re kidding me!!

You’re supposed to stand on them!!

Pretty simple. Dell laptop > Monolith Liquid Spark > Grado GH2 (cocobolo).

Thanks, but I don't show you my more messy corners though:)

I couldn't have written it more clearly (partly because I haven't the vocabulary), but I really enjoy the SQ. I really was hesitating to spend that kind of money, but now after a month, I don't look back. Still enjoy the micro BL, but the pro iDSD is a different thing. Before writing this, I was about calling it a day, but then I got to play the new Melody Gardot and I got stock. Fortunately it is Friday....

OT: The new Melody Gardot Sunset In The Blue....phewwww....it's something special. Should be easy Grammy material for best vocal jazz album of 2020 and is one of the best headphone experiences on the planet, even with my modest system. She really knocked it out of the park both musically and sonically.

I can’t stop listening to it.

Same here. I've got a fairly simple set-up--streaming Tidal Hi-Fi through UAPP out of an older Android tablet--Meridian Explorer2 DAC--Schiit Magni2 Uber feeding a pair of HE-4XXs, and her record sounds sublime. On Love Song, when those strings swell up for the first time out of a dead quiet background, well that's just about as peak a Head-Fi moment as there is for me.

Beautiful amp! Haven't seen or heard much from RSA in ages, which is a shame. Would've loved to see them incorporate a DAC into their portable amps. In fact, I've still got a lovely, little Tomahawk that was a constant travel companion for me for several years.

And, is that a Moreplay I see in the background? As a Bottlehead loyalist myself, I can appreciate that.

Best,

Joe.

Thanks yes I love the RSA
Will be doing a follow up review with half dozen opachips tested against the 1611 on the APACHE - with Kennerton Gh50JM edition- https://www.head-fi.org/showcase/up...limited-revision-4-newest-version-2020.24732/

The otl in the back is in fact a crack w/sb
Naked finish
It’s a nice compliment to the 150ohm - 600ohm hps I use especially the hd600 which is a match made in heaven
Anyway hopefully people can see my review and give me feed back
