what is best headphone amplifier in the world? - Page 2

post #16 of 78
From what I've heard in listening to a well outfitted PPX3 and extrapolating... I would say the SDS-XLR has it for the tube slot. For solid state, definately the Dynamight.

I have high hopes for my tube amp if I can ever get it working, though I doubt it will be at the SDS-XLR level.

For tube, SDS-XLR no doubt. This amp is amazing at all counts. Details, soundstage, speed, bass....the list goes on.

The best I've heard:

Dynamic, balanced: SDS-XLR
Dynamic, single ended: Angstrom Research two box
Electrostat: HEV90 (but I'm anxious to hear the ES-1)

Oo! Please do post impressions.

Such a purty amp...

Hopefully, a nice SinglePower ES-1 that will likely be here within the next 6-months or so.

I've long been a fan of the Cary 300SEI.

Hopefully the Gilmore Balanced reference will be top of the pop solid state headphone amplifier as I'm waiting it for mid-march

Oh come on now. Sure you can. SET isn't the end of the road for everyone.

The one I'm in the early stages of designing right now. All DHT's, 26's and 45's I'm thinking, transformer coupled class A push-pull. Just need to win a lottery or something so I'll have the money to build it.

You can't beat the direct connection (just thought I had to point this out one more time... ). 100 times higher accuracy than the best available amp at 1/100 (or less) of its price.
