Best Portable AMP under $400

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

What would be the best portable amp under $400?

I'm going to be using it with my Westone 4's.

That is about an impossible question to answer unless you provide some additional information....Do you intend to use it with your computer?  Need a DAC or Optical inputs?  How important is size?  Do you prefer batteries or internal rechargeable?   As nearly any portable amplifier can easily power your Westones, there are dozens of excellent portables that fit your stated budget.

I need an ultra-portable amp that is pocket sized.


I prefer internal rechargeable.

 

I don't intend to use it with my computer.

 

DAC and Optical are iffy.

 

To give you an example of an AMP I'm looking at would be the Pico Slim.

Thats easy - P4.

 

No, wait - D6. No, wait - PICO (amp only). No, wait - P-51. No, wait - Stepdance.

 

Just get a bank loan, buy them all and get back to us with your impressions. Alternately, you can wait for Skylabs 'Final Fantasy' Farewell Comparison of portable amps - might be cheaper, but the bank loan thing also has its merits.

What a shame about your limitations as I think the stepdance is just about the best out there and $30 below your price point including shipping!

The Arrow is ultra portable, awesome battery life, better versatility, and much more powerful than the Pico Slim.
