Hi, after lurking the forums i found it to be the general consensus that Tube amps and Denon D7000 won't go together...Why? I just tried out the gorgeous Argon HA 2 (The only tube amp my local retailer had) with them, and it sounded pretty darn amazing to me...
It was my first experience with a tube amp by the way, but to the more pressing matters:
I'm asking because until now I've only been into portable amps but now I want to get myself a desktop amp for my home listening, and i find the tube amps quite entriguing, partially because they often look the best - something steampunk-ish/futuristic about it i guess, and also because my one petty experience with one was very good, because so far I've found SS amps to be pretty...Boring sounding, too cold and clinical to my tastes. Any thoughts about which amp i should get - i know this is silly but it has to look decent too please, not too "cheap" :)
I intend to spend ~600$ max. on my entry amp...
For reference my headphone inventory is:
Denon AH-D7000 (Ebony Cups)
Grado HF2 (Fully woodied)
1964-Q custom IEMs
Thank you for your answers, comments, replies and help :P
