If this doesn't work out, a very good value in R2R DACs is the Schiit Modi Multibit at $249. Had one for about a year now and very pleased.
Hmmm... would you be interested in adding an HE4xx into the mix?
I've got a few better headphones around now, so I put aside the Superlux 668B that I own. I wasn't too pleased with the comfort - that headband design! and the stock earpads didn't seem to have much padding after I'd worn them for a while. I did try some replacement pads but they are/were too small to provide a good fit. I didn't try the Brainwavz XL pads, but that was good info... especially since it is likely that if those fit the 668B, they should also fit my old AKG K240 Sextett.So, I will be interested in hearing your comments about that "668B" test in particular. If you made any other mods/improvements to them, beyond the Brainwavz XL pads, maybe you could mention those as well. I still doubt that they will replace my better headphones, but I would be interested in hearing your opinion(s)/results. Thanks, Ron
Thank you, Dadbeh.I will add the Brainwavz XL pads to my "must buy" list.Looking forward to hearing about how you find the R2R functions as a DAC. (fyi - my best headphone amp in current use is the Schiit Lyr, so I'd probably lean towards a Schiit DAC, as suggested by dB Cooper, for my system. However, the favourable reviews of the Sabaj, etc., have caught my attention. So I will be interested in your comparisons.) - Thanks, Ron
Now I have been told that HE4XX is possibly identical to HE400i
Cool, so you got the Audio GD.
I know this is a shootout with this dac, and it would be nice to see some internal build shots if at all possible. I am always curious to whats inside the "box" being an avid DIY'er etc...if you can take the covers off (without power!!) take some pix, if not thats fine.Good luck in your comparision.Alex
