Im saving to get the sennheiser hd6xx but i have the beats pros right now, they sound good so dont give me crap pls, but will this amp make my beats sound much better till i get the sennheiser? I havent used my pros in an amp before, very new to this
Beats pro is overly warm headphone. Tubes will enhance that, which I don't think is nice.
However if you are going to get DarkVoice anyway, it will not hurt.
I think you should buy a solid state amp before you buy a tube amp , you can add a tube amp later on if you like ...
@hulkhagan - Hulk... this is the third time i read this and i will ask you the question... what would be the exact purpose for anyone to have a solid state and only after that shift/experience a warm tube setup?? i am rather new to this audiophile community and i see that no one really take the stand on saying that tubes sound "better" but rather put it as "different" instead - i am used to listening music on high fidelity speakers and on that side of the fence i have always preferred to have the warmer tube sound going out my Focal Aria 948 rather than transistor - why should it not be the same for cans? needless to say - excuse my ignorance but this seems to be the best way to learn. thanks in advance.
In my experience, one thing that rarely gets disussed is the difference from reco to recording in sound engineering. If there's a premium placed by an artist or label on sound engineerin, those records sound better to me on a solid state amp. I listen mainly to classical music and labels such as DG, Harmonia Mundi have pioneered sound engineering for half a century. Some jazz and pop songs I love are equally attentive to the technology and the DV may or may not improve on them. But it's a personal choice. The fact is, I am really happy to have both, but if I could not have but one, I'd go solid state for its accuracy and clarity. Also, when consi tube amps, keep in mind that you will certainly want to change out the tubes. if you listen a lot, you'll be changing them periodically because even really expensive tubes, like lightbulbs, burn out.
may thanks Stephen... very informative. much appreciated!
