The best amp for the money is the one you haven't heard yet, and there is always something better, cheaper, with more value on the dollar coming out any day now, with brand evangelists crawling all over these forums dying to tell you about how this amp will turn your into HD800s and johnny walker black into blue to boot.

All the same, I think the sound you hear & enjoy today is better than imaginary sound from the next big thing. (unless you can be totally happy imagining music in your mind, in which case, congratulations about your wallet!)(I might be new here, but I think I've learned a couple things already...)
