How is the headphone stage on the TT2?
My front end is far from simple now, but better definitely...after listening for several hours now, I am stunned at how much music was inside these little excite 12’s. It is like they doubled in size, but most importantly, the music just envelops you, draws you in, you don’t hear the gear, speakers, just great music. I would love to simplify further, trade in the XD’s on Confidence 20’s, but finding a dealer to do that might be hard.
Callas, all my gear is black, no way I want one silver component mixed in...and who said I paid 8k for my Sopra’s? Anyway, for now I will live with these excites, who knows what the future will bring. Don’t underestimate putting most of your money in the source (NDS) and DAC (TT2) low volume listening is through the roof good now.
Drew, honestly I have not tried my headphones yet, I will get to that later tonight, but if it is twice as good as the Hugo 2, as most users say, oh my, awesome...will chime back once i try them later.
One more thing, one of my goals was to get the best sound I could out of internet radio, because I don’t rent music (Tidal) and I succeeded with this, Linn Jazz sounds fantastic, any station I try really, so happy now.
