http://www.head-fi.org/products/category/amp-dacs I'm curious what happened to the first 3 places in ranking?
I currently have MDR-V6 and will probably get AKG-K702 for my next hp's I listen to a lot of classical, also quite a bit of live music, I have tons of grateful dead, led zep, tull, Hendrix, etc. My collection is almost entirely .flac some up to 24-192. Most of my listening is at my laptop, I've got a decent starter home theater, but can only listen on it if the family is out of the house. I also use audiogalaxy to stream my .flac collection over my phone. HTC EVO, the MDR's sound fine and will probably continue to be my out of the house listening head phones.
I'm not entirely sure if I want a tube amp like the G3 or project sunrise, or if I'd like something portable w/ a DAC also. Any recommendations? This is for my entry into the headfi world, and might take a while to get another past the wife. I'll be getting one of these as a birthday present for myself in a few weeks. The project sunrise is really a bit out of my price range, the G3 is right there but I could go a little higher for the right piece.
After rereading some reviews the QINPU A-3 looks like it might be a good one, I really like the MP301mkII but it's a little too high.
