I have just recently joined Head-Fi community, although I have been reading the Forum for quite some time now.
I am currently waiting for my Sennheiser HD580 to arrive. Meanwhile I would like to gain some insight on a good amplification for those headphones.
At home I have Linn Majik DS-I integrated DS player/DAC/pre-amp and amp driving Linn Katan monitor speakers. My portable rig consists of Sansa Clip+ -> Fiio E5 -> Koss PortaPro.
I think I would be using HD580 mainly at the office, so Clip+ would be a source.
My budget for an amp is about 800USD. I have considered following:
Ortofon Hd-Q7 (heard that they don't drive high-impedance 'phones good)
LittleDot Mk V
HeadRoom Micro Amp
Could someone share some thoughts about mentioned amps or add some models I may have missed that go well with HD580?
