What's the best solid state headphone amp today?

post #1 of 91
Thread Starter 
Or what's coming out that's killer. I own a HeadRoom Home amp w/AKG K701's. I might go to Senn HD800's. Burson, Amphora, CI VH2, Headamp GS 1, Red Wine, B22, new Meir Corda about to come out? Not a thing is wrong w/my setup. I have audiophile disease and looking for more. Thanks

My money is on the B22.

If you are ever down near St Louis, message me on here to stop by and listen to the F1. I am certain I won't be buying any other amp for my headphones.

KGSS (or maybe an SRM-717)

When it comes to my experience with most of those amps, the B22 is far and away the better option - and certainly in a 2 channel configuration, can be had for significantly less money than the rest as well!

I havent yet heard the B22 with the HD800, but can imagine the pairing would work well

mods - can we have this moved into 'Fullsize Amps', pls ?

If you're thinking HD800 --

I'd second abyrvalg -- Phonitor. If spatial balance and frequency reproduction balance are critical for you, then the Phonitor + HD800 has to be it.

Any list of top SS amps ought to also include the Grace m902. With 96kHz lossless tracks via toslink, the HD800 sings.

I haven't heard the B22.

I'd go with a Beta22. Preferably three channel.

The Beta-22 and the Headamp GS-X would be in high running.

Do Headroom still do the MAX?

I guess the Audio-GD Phoenix belongs in the list of top SS amps....

Whatever you get, you need to invite me over for a listen. I'll bring some Chex Mix!

I would check out Skylab's thread on his reviews of solid state amps.

I vote for the Phonitor and Luxman.

I love my Rudistor RP010B MkII.
