no, we're not talking about top of the line amps here. i'm not opposed to a relatively small, relatively inexpensive amp, but more than that is really getting out of my budget, and really beyond what i need too. i just need something that i'm going to enjoy listening to while writing cobol programs at work. something that sounds quite good, and is extremely confortable.
that said, i've been researching some today, going through old posts, etc. and wanted to ask what you thought about
AKG K-401/501's? possibly combined with an Altoid Tin Amp (?) from JMT? those Philips HP890's looked pretty sweet too. though i get the impression the HP890's can't be gotten in the US. anyone know of any place? if i could get a friend to get them in germany, there's no reason to think they wouldn't work on US electronics is there?
and thanks for all the advice you guys have given thusfar.
