HD595 AMP Recommendation

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
Been thinking about getting a set of HD650's recently but the more i listen to my HD595's im tempted to spend a bit of cash on these instead

What amp would work well with my 595's without breaking the bank ?

Been looking at the gilmore lite and the XIANG SHENG 708B but i understand the 708B needs modding to get the best out of it , is there anyone that does these mods and at cost ?

Thanks

He is right .... the 595 likes tubes.

mmm...I want to try some tubes with hd595...

First figure out what you want to get out of amplification of the hd595. Mostly you will be getting sound coloration out of it and bit more resolution, so choose how you'd like to color. (I'd imagine it would be all about bass, which ld2++ should hold up to xD)

Meier Porta Corda behaves nicely with the hd595, given that the source is up to snuff.

eBay, make sure you get it from the actual shop though.

DavidZheZhe is the official merchant.

There you go

I have this amp and same headphones and I love it. I very very much enjoy the Mullard CV4015 tubes over the stock ones though. Check it out

My Headfive is pretty good with the 595s but i'm also really curious what the heed can amp can do with the 595s. Or a singlepower, zana deux, or something of that caliber.

The 595/SR-71 is a great combination! The 595 is substantially expanded ~ subtle, deeper, more accurate bass; delicate highs.

X2.
I just got a HeadFive, and only listened a few hours last night but really liking it so far. I can only compare it to my portable PINT amp, but the HeadFive gives me the depth I have been looking for. The bass seems to be more detailed as well. This combination has been suggested a whole bunch of times on Head-Fi, and I think I now know why.

is the littledot meant to be used as a probable amp?

I want a solution for my computer.... should i get the bithead dac/amp or this?

maybe i can use the LD on the go as well.
