Trafomatic Experience Head One

    There is one second hand near to me which is on sale, so I have thoughts if I should go and have a listen.

    I don’t have any headphones at the moment, but I am thinking about some HD600s or HD800s for the near future.

    Does any one know anything about this company, even better how is this amp and if it would be able to run the 600/800s well?

    Also saw that it’s mentioned that it can be used as a preamp, will this work with my Mytek 192 dac and Neumann KH310, if I want to try this option?

    I am not really searching for a head phone amp per se, but wondered if it’s a good deal, given the second hand price.

    The trafomatic is superb with hd800 and 800S, and also with hd600.

    But not sure it will be a good match as a preamp into active studio monitors.... Would think you will be better with low output impedance balanced preamp for the KH310s, using XLR cables. Oppo HA-1 would fit the bill, again it's excellent for sennheisers and has balanced outputs, and has an excellent DAC too.

    Thanks, maybe I will audition it with HD650s just to see how they will get along, but if I can't use it also as a preamp, maybe I will not go for it.Or if the demo with the HD650s really impress me, than why not :)

    Regarding the Oppo, I don't have it locally available and to be honest, I was only considering the Trafomatic due to it's lower second hand price, and the possibility to use it as a headphone amp / preamp.
