What source? What input types do you require? What cans (if any) are you trying to match? There are plenty of reviews posted including a stickied 38 amp thread that should get you started. Simply stating a dollar criteria isn't necessarily enough information for people to help you out.

Are You looking for amps which cost >$100 or <$100?

If the former, what's your budget's limit?

There are tons of choices: FiiO, ....

Hot amps over $100: the O2, C5, ....

 

Edit:

I've just realised that this is a very old thread.

Back then there weren't FiiO amps .... the O2, C5  and many other amps.

But I wonder, what amps were hot in (June) 2008?

By the way, where do you buy C&C BH?

All this ebay buying is too scary for me. A lot of scam.

 

I'd like to explore more portable/transportable amps and/or dacs.

Yeah the pav2 is very popular and famous (amp) along with CMoy amp (from JDS Labs,   ...)

True. And I head the Magni is really something-mine should be here tomorrow. Though not portable.

Right, I was looking at replacing my - dare I say - Behringer HA400 amp.  It works and it was cheap, but I have some lower than 100ohm phones that I think should sound better, hence the dive into the pockets a little deeper for the Magni :)

Sorry-I think that OP meant to say <100. If he meant >100...then...opposed to the best amp in the world costing LESS than $100?
