Which HP-Amp between NOS DAC and AKG K701

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi All,

 

I'm new to posting  here, but i'm already a long time lurker. I'm not really into headphones because of the headphones. I love to feel bass and hear stage dimensions, but sometimes headphones are the only option with a family. I can't live without music either.

 

I will be using the DDDAC (non-oversampling DAC without output filter) because of it's non fatiguing sound and very acurate timing, resulting in a perfect midrange and a very tight and responsive bass. The AKG K701 is choosen because of it's bass extension and non-ephasized mid-bass in combination with a perfect and revealing midrange. Over bright highs with these cans are a non-issue in combination with the DDDAC.

 

Can anyone recommend a good heaphone amp with the next qualifications:

- equlally performant in the timing domain

- complementing or matching sound to the above combination

- has selectable crossfeed

- max price €350

 

Other than this, nothing really matters (as far as i can imagine). Off the shelve or DIY kit doesn't matter either, i slighthly prefer DIY kits.

 

All comments are welcomed and appreciated.

 

Kind regards,

Marc

While searching for a solution, i just found (i actually re-discovered) a very sound design by Dejan Veselinovic:

This is actually not a kit, it involves some experimenting to turn this into a headphone amplifier. But i'm sure that anything written by Dejan is based on listening and not only on theory books.
