Can you please recommend me a headphone amp that is good withe the SR225.

Thread Starter 

I got myself a Grado 225 for 150 tax included yesterday. I tried using optical output from my computer to my 7.1 Pioneer  VSX 919ahk amp/receiver, it definintely sound better than outputting from my ipod and on-board sound card from computer.

 

I am wondering if using Headroom Total Bithead  will improve further with my current optical ouput to my home theatre amp setup, also is there any other amp I should look out for. My budget is around 150-200, also I listen mostly to metal/rock and pop songs if that matters. Thank you very much.

Welcome to Head Fi and hang on for the ride.

 

The Grado SR series aren't hard to drive. Their character is bright on bad material.

 

Do you want a portable solution or a home component?

 

I personally like tubes to add body to the Grados but the power supply needed for 32 ohms makes a tube option expensive. Any SS or hybrid plays them just fine. Your receiver should be good until you start getting in the mid fi offerings.
