Best amp for Beyerdynamic T1

post #1 of 136
Thread Starter 

Just bought a pair of Beyerdynamic T1 and I'm now looking for a good amp to match them with (budget around $1,000).

 

All suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Thanks for the input.

 

What about the Woo 6se or the Concerto?

Anyone?

I personally use a Woo WA2 with the T1 and am quite happy with the combo.

This is a terrific pairing, IMHO.  The Decware CSP-2 is also a terrific amp with the T1.  If you prefer solid state, the aforementioned Meier Audio Concerto is a great choice.

So the Woo WA2 would be a better match for the T1 than the Woo WA6-SE?

I've never heard the 6SE, so I cannot say, but the WA2 is a better match with the T1 than the WA6, IMHO.

Thanks for the input.

 

I have now pulled the trigger on a Woo WA6-SE with a EML 5U4G mesh .

Congrats on the purchase.  Share some pics with us when it arrives!  What color did you get?

I never heard the WA6 before, but I use a Audio-GD ROC and WA3+ with ym T1 and the WA3+ easily smokes the ROC. OTL amps are the best for high impedance headphones. My next amp upgrade will be a WA2. I would love to try the WA6 though.

I have heard the Woo 6 and 6SE not the WA2 and five different solid state amps and I preferred the Decware CSP-2 by a wide margin to all others for the T1. It just makes them sound so right. The Meir was also very good with the T1. But the only one that has remained is the Decware/ Thanks again Rob for selling it to me it as super amp.

I've listened to the T-1 w/Meir which sounded great.  But the Woo WA6 sounded so much better to me.  The WA6SE would have even more performance wise.  I ordered my WA22 w/the T-1.  I'll let you know once I get it.

Good choice. I'm listening to this exact rig right now (John Surman, Private City) and enjoying it very much. I'd love to try the Decware with my T1s someday, but something tells me I already have enough tube amps as it is.
