What brand of headphone amps the Europeans over here buy? I'm looking for an amp for my HD580.

Musical Fidelity - X-Canv2 £149 (now out of production, get one while you can!)

Naim, QED, Creek (OBH something) - don't know the model

Surgen Headmaster £550

You can also get them on headroom, but I don't know about the voltage.

I Hope that there isn't an X-Cans Y2K+1 version or something... lol... this site is determined to make me bankrupt one way or the other...

Anyone wanna buy a lung? got one going spare

In Europe you've also got the Earmax, RKV and World Audio HD83 amp (the last one is a kit), all tube amps. Then there's the Linsley Hood kit amp and the Rega Ear, and of course Jan Meier's Corda amp.

Hey Raymond

Is the Xcans v2 really "out of production" this time, or is it just rumour like it was a couple of months ago?

Hamsta

PS - Still no luck on the Xcans front, but am looking more towards a solid state amp now, following some of the concerns expressed about pairing the high sensitivity CD1700s with a tube amp and getting an overly warm sound. Am thinking the little QED would probably be ample for my requirements.

PPS - I've been having trouble logging on to the HFC forum recently, have you had any similar problems?

Hamsta - I've rang up Musical Fidelity in Wembly in London and spoke to the sales department guy when I was looking for a X-PSU to see if they have one in their warehouse about a month back. He said that they have stopped the production on all X-ponents now, but they will make one more batch of the X-LPS and that will be the end of the X-ponents.

So I guess the end for the X-Can/X-PSU/X-LPs.....have finally arrived. Lucky I got them while I can.

Curious about MF! When I got both the X-cans v2 and X-psu in a week (£280 argh!) the dealer I spoke to said he knew nothing about either of them being discontinued! Surely if something as popular (apparantly) the X-cans shouldnt there have been at least a mention of this in WHF,HFC or whatever??....
