just joined head-fi a few days ago, first post here, but i have been reading the posts here for some time now. thanks and forgive my naivety.
right now i am doing most of my listening w/ my ath-w1000x out of my WA6. the WA6 for me has really smoothed out those headphones unlike i had heard before on any other amp, and right now i am enjoying the very sweet sound unlike i have on any other headphone in awhile. the problem is i work on ships for months at a time and i really cant be lugging the WA6 on an off flights overseas all the time, so i am looking for a small tube amp, easy to safely pack in my backpack when i travel, but not a portable amp...its just going to sit in my room once onboard ship.
i was trying to find the earmax pro but cant find it in stock anywhere, and other than that i am really clueless about where to start looking. i am willing to spend between $600 and $1000 i guess because i dont want to downgrade from my WA6 sound. but if there is anything cheaper that really holds it own let me know. thanks -jason
