Cheap cheap amp to start me off - Page 2

Thread Starter 
I think I'm gonna order a RE1 (maybe return my TF-10s since they're less than a month old) to go along with my new 8.50 amp

What do you guys think about the Cmoy off of eBay? I thought those would be the best\cheapest amps around

I picked up a Cmoy at the same time as I picked up the FiiO thinking I would sell on the FiiO after giving it a try but to my surprise after comparing them I think I will be selling on the Cmoy.

I'm tempted to order a PA2V2. Anyone know what they sound like with UE SF5pros and Alessandro MS1s (I'll be getting a pair later on in the year)

Ok. Since DealXtreme are backordered majorily, I might as well buy it from Trademe for extra and save the hassle. Gonna buy the RE1's from Fang.

I would also like to know how the PA2V2 works with the MS1s.
If anybody has any experience, first or second hand, I would love to hear.

How about this PenguinAmp.com -.
It's really good for the money! I owned one until I bought a Corda 2 Move (+ or - 3,5 X expensive!).

yeah I cant wait for mine to get here, or just to get out of payment received status at least. But yes this seems to be one of the best cheap options I have read about on here. Seems like there is PAV2, Juice's cmoy, Biosciencegeek's cmoy, penguinamps caffeine cmoy and the FiiO that fit into the best of cheap amp category, unless cheap means over $100 then there are a few other options that I cant remember because I try not to pay attention to those.

I've paired the MS1's and the PA2V2 with my X5 a couple years ago and found an absolute magical sound synergy. =)

No kidding? I would have expected the cmoy to have bested it.

I ended up getting SR60s. How would that pair with the PPA2V2?

itsborken i suppose it depends on the cmoy!!
had a few and some are vastly superior to others!!
damn the caffeine ultra when opened up looks nothing like a cmoy it just looks like a boutique amp built into a penguin mint tin!!

Fiio amp..well worth the ~$US11. Why not really tbh. It's only $11 from Ebay....
