What's Happening All
Never mind the title, I just wanted to get peoples attention. I'm new to Head-Fi and a budding audiophile and feel a bit lost and scared in terms of where to start and at how expensive my new hobby seems to be, respectively. I'm intrigued with tube amps and have decided that I absolutely have to have one. All my cans are low impedance (Alessandro MS2i/Senn 595/AKG K240 mkii). I've never listened through a tube amp but after a little research have narrowed my focus to 4 different amps.
1. Audiophile Products Little Country III
2. Little Dot MKIV SE
3. Schiit Valhalla
4. Audio Tailor Jade
#'s 3 and 4 were just added to the mix after reading Skylab's ranking of 29 tube amps. The relative price of these 4 amps is where my budget is at right now ($300-$450). If anyone out there has heard 2 or more of these and can offer their opinions I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
