Hello, i'm looking for a new amp for the HD650. I've been a long time owner of HD650, i used to drive this can with cavalli's bijou OTL tube amp and it is fantastic until i got my LCD2/mini torii but i still miss the HD650's intimacy.
I've shortlisted some of the potential amp that i'm interested in. Burson Soloist, WA3 and crack but i really do not have time to put together the crack. The most important aspect that i'm looking for in this pairing is musicality and intimacy. So what do you guys think of the soloist or the WA3? will it be a stepdown from my bijou OTL amp?
It took me two evenings (around 8 hours) to put my crack together, without any previous soldering experience. So, I won't throw away that option so quickly. Maybe you can listen to your LCD2 during the build :) And the pairing of Crack and 650 is indeed musical and intimate. Definitely.
