I've always been wanting to hear the CSP-2 since it can double as a desktop speaker amp. Just curious, what tubes are you running with the HD800s? I think that amp can take 6922s and I've got a few of those (for use with the Melos). Do you know if you could roll different combinations?

A very good match would be the HPBA-2 from QES Labs.

A super transparent amp, revealing with the analytic 800.

A review is here.
 

.... and should be within your budget.

get the 6se if you plan on getting a low impedance phone in the future.  wa2 does amazing job with hd800

I haven't heard one, but the Super 7 is the one I'd choose for your budget. People I agree with give it a thumbs up and owning two Moth/Eddie Current amps, I can vouch for reliability, customer service and build quality.

I also enjoyed the DNA Sonett ($1,200) with the HD-800. It also is of good quality and design.

The WA6SE is an excellent choice. I'll look forward to your impressions.

The woo stuff is great, especially the wa2 and wa5 ;). However, if I were you, i would also consider the Schiit Lyr, works well with the HD800 imo and is cheaper, giving you more room to experiment with different tubes which is always fun.
