I have an Antique Sound Labs MG Head DT headphone amp but did not use it for the test. This amp sounds great, but as I said, these headphones are not very bassy regardless of the amp. Everything else about the frequency response is wonderful, though.I should say that I prefer what is most likely an "exaggerated" bass response in headphones. I used to have various Koss phones and compared to the Sennheisers they had very warm, ear-massaging bass, but the clarity of the HD600s is much much better. I do kinda miss that low end pressure, though.
FWIW, NAD has a new 50wpc integrated that's gotten big praise for its sonics in The Absolute Sound, the 320BEE, $399, and it seems to have it all: tone controls, headphone input, remote control. The specs look great: http://188.8.131.52/info/NAD_C320BEE.pdfI'm interested in one for myself for a second system. Have you heard about it?
DVV, so you've actually heard this model? Didn't it just come onto the market, or are we way behind in the USA?Regardless, thanks for the heads-up. For that price, I might be willing to overlook some minor quibbles for a second system. I'm looking at something down the road anyways to give my wife something to use upstairs. Was the NAD fully broken in? Is the Rotel fully integrated competitive price wise? My personal experience with Rotel is very good build quality, good but uninspiring sound. You are right on the money when describing the lack of ambient factor (air) with Rotel. Maybe it's the resistors.
Sounds like the comments of someone who prefers tubes to solid state
