Am new here and also in the audioworld.
I wanted to get new headphones to do everything with (listen to music, watch movies, play games, tv, etc).
immersion is the goal, soundstage, holograficity, as much 3d as possible
I have long read in forums and watched many youtube videos and now already got some things, I am only missing the amplifier and so I have now created an account here to hear your advice.
During my research I read many posts from pokrog, because of his posts and the feedback that followed his advice, I already got myself the following components, this is my current chain:
AMP still to be defined
The edition xs seem to need more power than average to get the best out of these headphones, so i bought the passive preamp ns05p to turn the amp up full and control the volume via the passive preamp ns05p.
I live in switzerland and the market is therefore limited.
Recently I had seen via hifishark a monolith liquid platinum for about 380 usd and the lake people g111 mkii (which is highly praised by wavetheory) I can buy here via thomann.ch for 550usd.
Unfortunately i couldn’t find anywhere a comparison between the newest G111 mkii and the Liquid platinum and which of the two gets more out of the edition xs.
I would now be interested in your opinion on the mentioned amplifier in combination with the edition XS. Which one can give me more immersion, soundstage, holograficity, 3d?
Other amplifiers I have looked at would be the cayin iha-6.
If i have to i can spend the 550usd, but i would prefer to stay in the 350 usd range, but if the benefits outweigh…
Do you guys have any other recommendations?
Best thanks in advance
