I tried my HD555's in my Logitech Z-2300 controller. Definite loss of quality.

good to know I hadn't A/B tested the sound quality because of the easy access to the logitech controller, and cheap headphones I've been using. Now after buying a 25ft hdmi cable to move my receiver/tv away from my computer I will be rearranging again.

The logitechs do amplify the headphone output, I now have all my volumes up all the way, luckily that is perfect for my cheap headphones.


Is there an noticeable difference, or any difference, in using a dedicated headphone amp over a HT receiver?

I demand proof!

There is a thread on Head-Fi about a potential Austin meet at the end of June (20 or 27). I will definitely try to go if that's the date... how about you?

Funds are being saved as we speak . That's awesome that you're on the planning team though. Your inclusion on the team was a wise move indeed .

The guys that put this Can Jam together did an incredible job. They did have quite a few problems to attend to including, yet not limited to, a leak in the ceiling causing water and ceiling material to come crashing down onto one of the vendor tables . Hopefully, next year's proceedings will be a good deal less eventful... at least in terms of such calamitous happenings as that.

Well I'm sure they didn't quite plan for that event to occur at all.
