So fellow HD650 lovers, what are your thoughts on solid state amps? I've also been looking at the Schiit Lyr. (With the reasoning that finding 1 pair of matched NOS tubes is easier than finding 1 pair of matched GB 5654 and 1 pair of matched 6N6P-IR.)
Another thing that I've noticed with the HD650 and the Little Dot MK III. To get the small details up to a level that does them justice I have to turn the volume up louder than I'd like to. So I'm not really looking for an amp with more power (assuming power = volume) but more detail at lower volumes.
P.S. If you know of a tube amp that sounds great with out crazy expensive NOS tubes I'm all ears. I just hate thinking that I might be missing something because my *hypothetical* Lyr doesn't have Seimen CCa tubes or WA6 SE isn't using a hard to find USAF 596 rectifier, etc. Just knowing that there is more to be had from an amp but I'm going to have to dump more money on an expendable item kills me.
