I'll shortly be going off to school and I am looking for a nice amp to pair with my DT880 600ohms.
Based on my reading, good solutions tend to be things like the Darkvoice 336 or Woo Audio 3 etc.
My only issue is that this will be coming to school with me. Due to that I would like to stay away from stuff with large, easy to break tubes.
I am more inclined at the moment to possibly go with a little more friendly solid state amp that won't be in any real risk. The easiest thing might the Fiio E7/E9 combo, but I'm curious if there are some other amps like the Meiers (or others) that might give a better outcome.
My max is $400 but I would love to keep it down to around $300-350 (lower the better)..
Of course, I am fine buying used if it will drop some amps down into my range.
Thanks for the help!
