Has anybody tried the HD600 with a Lake People amp?
I had been fixated on getting the Bottlehead Crack since i got the HD600, but after getting to try a tube amp at a friend's house(Little Dot MKIII), i have kind of changed my mind about tube amps. The 600 did sound lovely and smooth, and vocals and bass were a step up from the E9K i have at home... but while on some songs it was awesome, in some of my favorite music(Nightwish, Anime OST's, etc) the extra warmth was definitely not a good thing.
So i have decided to get a neutral sounding SS amp in the $250 - $350 range. I know about the M-Stage, but i have been interested in the Lake People G103 because it's been described as a transparent amp that "gets out of the way of the music" by Innerfidelity. And does not have edginess. Edginess = potential sibilance = Urggh.
So.. any other amps that in that price range you guys would recommend?
If you're willing to wait for delivery times, the Schiit Asgard 2 is a great SS amp for the HD600. Plenty of power when using high gain to drive the Senns, while you still have the flexibility for lower impedance cans with the low gain switch as well as a line-out to feed powered speakers.
