Thanks guys! :)
" MLE, I have some amps on the list that I will try to check out. (Matrix m-stage, BCL, woo audio 22, Leben cs300 and SPL phonitor) The reason I didn't buy an amp with the HD 800 was that I have a limited access to testing, and I didn't want to spend a whole lot of money just to know I could've got something better for less the cash. Besides, when I bought the cans I got an offer I couldn't refuse."
A few notes. The Woo 22 works best with a fully balanced source/DAC as well as the HD800 being cabled balanced. You can go with the WA6SE or WA2 if you're going single ended. Also, the SPL Auditor is sonically the same as the Phonitor. The Phonitor just as all the bells and whistles, knobs and meters. At twice the price. The B22 is an amazing solid state amp if you're willing to spend the cash. If you're seriously looking at the Leben then I guess budget isn't a huge issue? Don't forget the many DACs that are available too.
I was looking into the Lavry DA11 dac...?
And the leben cs300 is about the same price as the WA22...
