I'm glad to be here with such a passionate and extremely knowledgeable community. I apologies in advance for creating a new thread, but I'm very particular about what I need to know.
I own the Sennheiser HD- 555 and the Sony STR- DH520 receiver. I will be upgrading to a different set of headphones. My 555s are getting old and I want the next-best-thing, within the mid-range price tag. The receiver is still within the 30 day return policy, so I'm curious about a dedicated amplifier.
I'll try to explain what I want, in my own terms.
Sennheiser, Audio Technica, AKG. Top three choices.
Price cap - $300.
Comfortable, nothing extremely heavy with bass, not too laid back, preferably closed back.
I know nothing about amp brands.
Price cap - $200.
Doesn't have to be portable but is preferred.
Optical audio input
Headphone jack output. Any size.
The setup will be for gaming, mostly.
So. What upgrade options do I have?
