Hello everyone! Been reading all through this forum and there is a ton of great info here! So I have a question. I am looking to expand my equipment range with a tube amp. Looking to stay around the $200 mark give or take. Lets see, Music preference would mainly be Trance and Electronic music, but not limited to just that, also Rock from classic to modern, light to heavy, Jazz, Big Band and Classical. So all over the place there. Equipment I have, Cans: Grado SR80i's and (Don't Laugh) Razer Orcas. Also have a Fiio D7 I use. Source: PC using mainly 320 MP3 or Zune for on the go.
So why tube amp? As long as I have enjoyed music I have always wanted one, I want to hear that "tube sound"
So in my reading I decided to start with a cheaper hybrid amp. Options I am considering are:
I also plan in the future to invest in some nicer cans (around the $300 or less mark - AKG 701's?)
Thanks everyone for giving this a read!
