        Sorry, your love of Harbeth must have made its way into my subconscious! Anyhow, congrats again. It certainly has its moments, but I am 15 years in and still loving it.

      In love with my restaured Sony TA-707ES. Even the HP output is amazing and compares well to anything out there SS wise id say.

        Vacation with self-imposed ban is like taking a break and slamming the door on the way out.

        Only problem is that the only ones who understand why are the ones who understand anyway.

        I still do not like the way things are going. The self-imposed ban was unnecessary. But hey, people have their reasons and that is that...

      I prefer my headhones via my Sony 707ES headphone output over my ifi Micro Ican. Time to explore speaker taps and speaker amps huh!?!?

        My HD600 from the headphone out of my Sony CDP-750 sounds so good I have postponed a stand-alone amplifier thus far. So yeah...

        I also prefer my 808ES' phone jack to the Magni 2 and Vali 2 for HD650 and HD800. The Sony seems to have more control over those phones, sound is more fluid and smoother, and more holographic. The Vali 2 is slightly better at detail retrieval tho.

        the 808es is almost identical to the 707es, happy to know how they compare to schiit amps!
        do you happen to know if the output section on the 707/808 are simply padded down by resistors or is there a headphone output stage?
