Havent fully decided on the amp side yet, I did really like the Sonett at the meet, I thought it was one of the best amps present, but Im leaning towards going for something balanced, WA22,Apache,GS-X are the thoughts.
Wont be having enough money to buy an amp right away after the DAC so I'll have a month or two to decide on that part :-)

Personally I'd go GS-X
Side note - Danne, how are you going to be using it? what transport, headphones, etc
The transport will be either coax from the creative x-fi fatal1ty Ive got or USB from the computer right away, what ever sounds best :-)
The headphones will be the newly purchased HD 800 and maybe the ESW10JPN from time to time.
Im planing to sell my HD 650 and my very old HD 555 are purely back up.
