I disagree - the amp can only 'extract' something that is in the headphones/speakers in the first place, but a bigger/better amp is going to do a better job of doing that. I know that from my time with the AD900.

Yeah, Talisman T-31H vs 33H makes soundstage/channel separation etc more apparent, so amps definitely make a difference.

Amps definitely give seperation.

Reminds me of the pickups on my Ibanez RG570, the pickups with scooped mids definitely give a more 'hi-fi' tonality to the sound.

can they take away separation though? like make something sound narrower than it should.

Guys, this thread started over 2 months ago - surely one of you is close to completing a build by now ? For all I know, Oliver spent my deposit on DVD porn and Guiness, but the 02 seems to have fallen off the radar. Novelty may just have worn off, I guess. :crybaby:

Damn it grevillea!

I'm still waiting on the slowest group buy organiser to get his sh!t sorted. I wasn't overly fussed by the wait though compared to most, until now that is.
