Welcome to Headphone Heights, the place for all your ear bud discussion

Maybe, but I get the feeling...

... that very few people here have had the opportunity to listen to the very same Pioneer amp driving HD-800 headphones.

So, IMO, the OP needs to listen to a few modern, dedicated headphone amps so that he might learn for himself. Those of us who have listened to a variety of dedicated headphone amps (balanced or otherwise) have been pleasantly surprised, but it can be hard to convince another person who has not heard the difference on a firsthand basis.

OTOH, there is no accounting for taste. To the OP's ears, the Pioneer may indeed sound as good or better as anything being made today.

Listening is learning.
