Headphone amp - possible mistake

Recommended Posts

Guest adamus

the darkvoice goes very well with most high impedance headphones. Bizarrely they used 30uf output caps, which limits you to 300ohm headphones or above, senns are 300 so its ok.

I quite liked the Solo into my AT ATH-W1000's.

Bettered by Stax though to my ears, by quite some margin...

Which Stax though? Some are very expensive.

If you refer to the basic Stax (£400), I have heard people raving about them, but to me, I felt my Senn HD600 and ANT Amber combo was better sounding. The Stax were very clean sounding headphones, but ultimately seemed to lack character. No real punch to them.

Not the most basic but not the top of the range either.

All the mid to hi-end conventional phones I've tried, HD650's, ATHW1000's, Grado SR325's just have a distortion / impure edge to them I cannot accept.

Horses for course I guess. What sets my ears off might not / will not set yours off.

The Stax are clean, pure and dynamic and to my ears have a character of sound the others cannot convey. Perhaps front end plays in here too? I am very happy with my TT / phono stage front end into amp and speakers and demand the same from my phones set up.
