Planning to get one to drive a hd700 and possibly use it with iem im-04. Anyone knows how it compares with schiit magni/modi stack?
I don't have hd700 or any Sennheisers for that matter, but I have the Hifiman he560 (i know drastically different headphone) and drive them using both the Cayin C5 DAC/amp when i'm on the go and a Bimby (bitfrost Multibit)/Lyr 2 stack at home. I can tell you that i love the Cayin and it provides loads of power with a very black backround, good mids and nice dynamics. However the IMO Lyr/Bimby stack blows it away in terms of resolution, instrument separation, tonality and overall control. So my thoughts are that the Cayin can drive the hd700 very easily and nicely, but my guess is the Schiit stack will bring what's really special out of your headphones. Hope that helps.
