Suggest an amp for me?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My headphone repertoire is:

Sennheiser HD 800

Beyerdynamic Tesla T1

Audeze LCD-2

Ultrasone Edition 8 Ruthenium

Beyerdynamic DT770 600 ohm

Grado RS1i

Denon D5000

 

I listen mainly to classic rock, progressive rock, and hard rock with a bit of classical and dubstep mixed in.

 

Budget: $1500

Have you thought about collecting a few more dollars and ordering a Zana Deux? It's remarkably competent with everything thrown at it short of the K-1000. I'd probably unload a headphone or two to increase the budget and place an order if I were you. Take a look through the owners' thread. You won't find many disappointments in there.

700 is hardly a few more dollars :P

 

That's about as much as a moderately high end computer! But we do what me must for optimal sound in this little hobby...

 

On a side note, are the K1000's really that tough to drive? To think I almost decided on using a WA6 to power it -_-

I know, and I had terrible buyer's remorse after placing the deposit, but it's been worth it. There have been a couple of used ones in the For Sale Forum lately, but I don't know if they've been sold.

The K-1000 is a tough headphone to drive. The user manual tells you to use a power ampmfor speakers with 8W or better. I usually run them off the speaker taps on the Moth (3W) which seems good enough and the 2A3s really make them sing.
