anyone else try the Project Head Box SE II?Hi,
New member here and only recently getting into audio at all, let alone headphones. Sorry for the long-winded post, but it's my first one here. After the next paragraph, feel free to skip the rest, it's just background
I was wondering how the Head Box SE II might compare to the Headroom Micro Amp. They are priced within $50 of each other, and although I already have Project stuff, it's hard to find reviews and the price difference is only $50 or so, whereas I've read good things about the Micro Amp here and elsewhere.
I mostly listen to vinyl through HD600 headphones, but my current setup is in dire need of upgrading.
I have a Project Debut III turntable + Phono Box SE phono stage (original, not II) but my integrated Denon amp is frankly not up to the task. Just for kicks, I ran the music using a Rotel RC 1070 pre-amp as a headphone amp, and the difference was so great that I can't bear to use the Denon anymore.
Although the Micro Amp is more consistent with what I would like to spend, after looking through Headroom's site, I've been itching order a Ultra Desktop Amp so I could delay upgrade-itis and also use the DAC to get better sound from my computer.
I would like to make a decision soonish before analysis paralysis might set in. Any advice appreciated.
