Just got the HE-500's I was researching amps and upgrade cables. Without burnin and using my TD-11 dac/pre I'm blown away with the sound. I know that with burnin and only getting only 600mw @ 32omh there's improvement coming. Any tube amp recommendation? I heard good things about the EF-5. I don't want to spend over $500 usd? I've been reading up on the EF-5, lyr and the 337/339 darkvoice. It seems that eventhough the lyr has more power the EF-5 has a fuller presentation. I have no firsthand experience with any of the amps just looking for real user feedback???
I'm going to wait until I get a tube amp flavor going before deciding on any cable upgrades but thought will be appreciated. I'm not looking for uber highs I'm more a midrange bebop guy😱
Do you currently own any tube amps?
