Has anyone compared the sound of a Sennheiser HD 600/650/6XX powered by this amp (DROP + THX AAA™ 789 LINEAR AMPLIFIER) connected to the Grace Design SDAC Balanced vs connected to the Massdrop x Artist Audio R-R2 DAC? If so, what is your impression?
virtually identical. Both those DACs are very good, the r2r is better but it's gonna take quite a lot to hear an audible difference between good dacs, a dac is doing something very wrong if it sounds noticeably different to another.
Really appreciate your response but somehow I missed it prior to deciding which DAC to order. After reading a review which stated that the sound quality of the SE output was almost identical to the BAL output of the 789 Linear Amp, I decided to order the better DAC, the R-R2 DAC. Colour me already extremely impressed after hooking the R-R2 DAC up and listening to my Sennheiser HD 600 via the Schitt Magni 2 Amp. With no break-in time, it bows the Schitt Modi 2 DAC away (as I suppose it should at 3.5 times the price). Hopefully replacing the Magni 2 with the 789 Amp, after its production run is completed, will yield even more impressive benefits.
