 Your right!  This was the conversation when she got home:  Me:  "I'm surprised you haven't commented on the new addition to the bedroom." GF:  "I didn't even notice" Me:  "I added another amp to my rack." GF:  "I don't care what you do with your rack." Me:  "That's good because I posted pictures of it online." GF:  "Just as long as you don't post pictures of mine..."  As far as the vintage gear is concerned, the Kenwood is my favorite amp I have ever heard with my HD-650....
Here is the current state of the bedside rig.  My GF may not be too stoked about the second vintage amp I snuck in this morning while she was at the gym.  She has been VERY tolerant of my obsession, but there are limits...             
    I have an Optonica SM-7305 integrated amp from the late 70's that I LOVE.  I use it as my speaker amp in my bedroom.  It is a nice piece of kit and built like a tank.  I bet the SA-5901 sounds great and it sure is a looker too! 
I just picked up this Kenwood KA 3500  today (better pics to follow).  In the process I also found someone to fully test and service my Akai AA 1050 and replace the bulbs. Nice little Sunday!    
  I think this has been added to recently to make it SUPER clear, but I thought it was pretty clear to begin with...
  +1   If your patient, you could probably find a used Schiit Bifrost with USB for $300 or less.  I think pushing this budget gives a few advantages:   1) Better source to begin with   2) More functionality in case you want to add sources, hook into home stereo, etc.   3) With the Bifrost (and some other DACs) there will be future upgrades avaiable as technology improves.   That being said, you may be totally satisfied with a less expensive option.  It really depends how...
If you are going to have a desktop DAC, you will either need an "all-in-one" DAC/amp combo or separate DAC and headphone amp.  In your price range, you are probably going to do the best with a DAC/amp combo.     Two combos I have experience with in your pricerange are the FiiO E17 and Aune T1.  The Aune is the better combo in my opinion, but the E17 has the option of portability if you want to use it as a portable headphone amp for mp3 player, phone, etc.     If...
Just came across this on the deals thread:     "Originally Posted by Whitetriton  Schiit Lyr is on Amazon, sold by Schiit Audio, for $399 +$18.75 shipping (3 left in stock at time of posting this).  On the Schiit website, it sells for $449.    http://www.amazon.com/Schiit-SCH-03-Lyr-Headphone-Amplifier/dp/B004T335BK/"       Any chance their clearing out old stock for a Lyr II release?
This is the first deal I have ever seen on Schiit!  They are pretty adamant about sticking to MSRP... maybe a LYR II is eminent and they are clearing out old stock?
That was my understanding too
