I nearly started a new thread and then I saw this,
I'm looking for a new rig purely for 'listening'
Basically all of the audio equipment I own i've bought for it's neutrality (well as neutral as i could afford, for mixing/mastering purposes)
I currently have AKG K702's, KRK KNS-8400's, Etymotic MC5's and an O2 amp amongst other things (monitors etc) the DAC I'm using is a Native Instruments Komplete Audio 6.
But i'm looking for something that I can just listen to, I want some warmth (for the price),
I'm considering buying some Allesandro Ms1i's (2009 Improved) and either building or buying a Tube-Amp,
Does anybody have any reccomendations?
I wanna spend all up probably $350-450. Or around $300 just on the amp
Thanks in advance for your help!
I think the hd598 are quite good for just warmth and a wide soundstage, or if you prefer closed, the ultrasone pro 750 is also pretty musical. Good amp for 300$ or so would be to me the bottlehead crack. Slightly warm sounding while retaining clarity.
