Stello HP100, IMO
I'm using a pair of Audio Technica ATH-AD2000 cans, and the soundstage/3-D sound with this combo is truly stunning

I Think...

I think... the one amp with truly "speaker-like soundstage" is the Phonitor. From what I've read, no other amp can match its soundstage, without the Smyth Realiser sound processor, which reportedly can reproduce the sound of the best speaker set ups with any headphone set up.

But... at quite a premium.

First headphones do you own, what's your budget, what music do you primarily listen to and what other traits do you seek from an amp? The more info you provide generally the better quality help you'll recieve.

I have budget around $400-$500 and my favorite is Rock, blues, jazz

I love to listen in 3D sound,
please note I only want SS amp, not convenient to use tube amp

Lavry DA11 has signal processing to create exactly what your looking for. It also has an included amp. Maybe a new source is what you need. Or the the onboard DA11 amp untill you feel like getting a bigger amp. Hell, if your headphones are easy to drive the DA11 may be all you need.

I really like the β22.
Impressive sound stage, of course a bit depending on the headphone it is paired up with (hint: K1000).

You won't find an answer, OP.

I think anything that's able to power the K1000 will give you that impressive soundstage.

The Heed Canamp must be the best bang for the money 3D sounding amp.

Hi turkeyboya,

Although some setups can reproduce depth and staging, to really recreate the illusion of 3D if comes down to the recording method. Binaural recording is what first comes to mind and some recordings can be down loaded, a few years back there was a thread here which included a few.
Do you wish to emulate a HT environment or a 360 sound field for all recordings.

With the HD800 (and Denon and AKG), the Phonitor for sure.
