    Is is possible to run dual Vidars in monoblock configuration out of the Af’s balanced outputs?

    I’m enjoying Af no feedback tremendously with HD800SDR and HD600. I really like HD650K with Af tertiary feedback but need moar bass/impact/slam. Is there a headphone besides Verite that may do the trick with feedback running? Source is Yggdrasil A2. I would greatly appreciate any and all suggestions, thanks.

    Aeolus or Auteur with Universe Suede pads.

    Aeolus is the more 650-like, wins in detail slightly, Auteur is the more 600-like, wins in timbre.

    Havent compared directly, Aeolus might have the slightly better bass?

    Or a Clear, just be aware of Focal warranties as replacement headband is like 800 ameripesos out of warranty, and also it needs a fat copper cable as the stock one by many accounts causes temperamental treble.

    You mentioned "Verite", so I assume your looking for a higher resolve than hd6xx types and others mentioned above.

    The Focal types are a step up but have their issues.

    I still recommend the Denon 9200 over them.
    Way, way overlooked and actually at a high resolving level.

    Anyone had a chance to compare Mullard 5AR4 versions f31 (fat base) and f32, with Af?
