An Amp for 3 beast - K1000/HD800/HF2

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Ciao
I'm from Italy and i need a really versatile amp for my room rig for these headphones:

AKG K1000 - 120Ω 74db
HD800 - 300Ω
HF2 - 32Ω

I was thinking about the Audio-Gd Roc or Phoenix (in that way i'll pair it in the future with an Audio-Gd DAC to use ACSS). I am only worried about the K1000. I know that K1000 is usually paired with a speakers amp (like i do with my Marantz PM8003 in my main rig), cause they need a lot of power. I've read different opinions inside other threads, but i prefere to point it out in a new thread.

Have you any advice about other good amp (not Audio-Gd as well) ? Let's say that my max budget is the Phoenix price (with some tolerance).

Thank you all in advance.

Maybe a beta22 with speaker out for the K1000?

B22 can run K1000 from the headphone outs.

a Balanced B22 is usually at 1800$ or more right ?

Sometime you get lucky for a DIYer's balanced b22 for around $1200-1500. Every time I saw one but my wallet says you can't have it.

There's a balanced B22 with JTA for sale at ~$1,200 now. Awesome deal, I must say.

If you want to listen at normal-ish (80 - 86 dB) levels you only need 4 - 16 mW. It's only on peaks that they get hungry. 100dB peaks need about 500 mW.

I think that B22 sounds like a good recommendation.

Good luck,
J.

It's so easy to rewire to 220V.
