What would be a good amp for the HE500 that fits the following requirements...
1) Under £300
2) Sufficient power for HE500
3) Warm sound with good bass
4) Smooth treble (nothing bright / thin / harsh)
What about Audio GD, Yulong, Schiit?
Also interested in DAC / AMP combo such as the Yulong D100...
This is the output power of the Yulong D100... Headphone output power: 130mW at 300Ohm, and 900mW at 32Ohm - Is that enough for the HE500?
A-gd 15.32 ? Not tried it with 500's (ohms/sig difference) yet....(looking at 500's just now and another planar) , but the designer described it the way you need it (3+4) to me by email.
11.32 high detail / neutral
15.32 warmer / "more musical"/less analytical.
