So I have a couple of dilemmas now. 1.) Do I buy 2 matched 6N6P-IR power tubes for the Little Dot MK III, or do I hold out a couple of more weeks for Schiit's Vali while I try to decide on and save up for a hi-fi (not entry like the LD MK III) amp? 2.) What hi-fi amp am I going to get. Ah the life of an audiophile, haha. :)
From what I've read, the Vali's are quite a bit brighter than the Magni's. I suppose it comes down to what sort of sound you like -- colored or transparent. It'd be nice to have an official list, but from what I've gathered, a few of the colored amps that pair really well with the HD650's are:
Bottlehead Crack (+Speedball)
It would be great, regardless of what amp you choose to get, if you could do an A/B comparison between un-amped HD650 and an amped HD650. I'm extremely curious whether any of these amps are worth the money for the HD650 in a blind-test.
