 I had a WA6SE that I used for my Audezes.  I'm sure the regular WA6 is a different animal but that SE made the LCD-2's sing like no other amp I tried. 
 I know in the case of the A1, I turned it from a 3 to a 5-6 on the Tubey Scale (1 being complete syrup and 10 being ice cold) just by replacing the Raytheon 6AK5's it came with stock with some Telefunken diamond-bottom 6AK5's I bought for a song ($40/pr if memory serves) on Tube World.  The Telefunks and Siemens tubes have a reputation for being a little more on the crisp side and in my case, that definitely turned out to be true.  I shudder to think what the MDs might...
Excellent info.  I might have to go digging into the vintage market...such a cool look to most of those things.  And that little Emo unit has always intrigued me.  I've been considering getting some Emo pieces as backup and the little guy might fit the bill...
Any suggestions? I like vintage gear...

Hi guys...new Mad Dog owner here.  Just a few comments:   It took literally all of 8 minutes for Mr. Speakers to ship my MDs after I placed the order.  I was pleasantly shocked.  :)  And the USPS held up their end of the bargain, getting me my new toys in just under 1.5 business days.    Wasn't quite sure what to think of my MDs straight out of the box.  I'm running them primarily at my desk at work out of a Maverick Audio A1 amp and Schiit Modi.  At first I thought...
Welcome to head-fi.    I highly recommend the Maverick Audio stuff.  I have an A1 with Telefunken tubes in it that powers both my HD600's and DT880/600's very, very well. 
I can't believe nobody has mentioned the Bottlehead Crack.  For the high-impedance Senns, it doesn't seem like it gets much better, particularly for the price.    Edit: Oops...gotta go past Page 1 to get to the Crack reference.  Whew, glad it was somewhere.
This is getting kinda off-topic but I thought I would throw in a recommendation for a good TT cart: Ortofon 2M Blue.  I've never had an ounce of low end problem with mine + BH Crack + HD600's.  Was listening to some bassy stuff last night, in fact.  The Blue is where it's at.
