Yes, and we can leave it at that. Now we need to pay attention to TOS #5.

Just a short update, I've been using the HD800's with the E17 / E09K combo for a few months, however I attended a meet recently and spent some time with various amps / combos inc the HDVD800 which made the HD800's really shine. The difference was very noticeable. Also tried a Burson Amp which was a close second.


Thanks, for the feedback. But I'm sure people here would refuse to rationalize the cost of a 2000$ solid state amp.
The usual counter arguments, is that you've been victim of placebo (only blind test allows to defeat this argument)
or that there's some coloration from the source (then we'd need some measurements to invalidate or confirm that hypothesis).

Cost has nothing to do with it. We aren't interested in subjective impressions based on sighted evaluation of audio gear regardless of the price. Saying amp XYZ makes the HD800 shine is a TOS #8 violation because of the meaningless subjective language and because it wasn't supported by results from a double-blind test.

As such you will have to read that post from the Recycle Bin with the other nonsense posts that made it there from this discussion (as well as others).
