Another choice I would consider is the Icon audio HP8 MKII would love to hear from anyone who has tried these amps with the HD 800.

 

Can't speak about the others but the Icon is heaven with the HD800 - one of the best combinations I've heard with the Senns.

Think I'll give this a try based on your recommendation. Icon are just down the road from me!

I have heard that Icon Audio is only designed in Leicester but all the manufacturing and parts are sourced in china. I don't know but if I want to buy a Chinese amplifier I would buy a darkvoice or little dot. Personally I would go with the Lehmann Black Cube Linear or Voilectric V200 or a SPL Auditor and finally if you have the budget a SPL Phonitor.

Right now I have a vintage Pioneer SX1010 fed coax via Halide bridge from Audio GD NFB17.32 and it is the best I have heard the HD800.Before I had Phoenix,WA6 in all sorts of DAC configurations and it always left me wanting.
The SX1010 also has hardware EQ which beats all software EQs I have tried so far.
The sound is meaty and holographic and still ultraclear....best of both worlds.

I find the Eddie Current 2a3 works really well with the HD800's.

IMHO, the Beta22 or a M^3 , even in standard form and with the original Senns cable , are a perfect match for the Senns HD800.

Canor TP-10. Doesn't get mentioned a lot on here but it's driving my HD800's at the moment and driving them well. Vocals in particular have a gorgeous rich sound. I'm also noticing more details when listening to familiar recordings. Good bass too.

I've run my HD800's with Blue Circle SBH and a V200.   Both were very nice.

 

But I get the best sound I've heard from the HD800's, BY FAR, with my Sound Quest SQ84-V2.

 

15wpc, two inputs, runs speakers as well as cans.   Uses the 6V6, the same tube in the $5700 ALO amp that is getting all the rave comments.  

 

Talk to Stephen at Sound Quest and see what he can do for you.  

 

This is a really great tube amp.
