I have a LD DAC I and LD MKIII with 6J1P-V=EF95 tubes, along with my HD650. My setup has done me well for the past 2 years but I think its time to upgrade to the next step. The weakest part in my setup is definitely my amp so I figured upgrading that would be better before shelling out for a nice pair of cans like the Audeze LCD-2.
My budget will be somewhere around $500-$1000 since I figure I'll eventually get the LCD-2 in the future and wouldn't like to have an amp that works fairly decently with them without spending a fortune.
So does anyone have any suggestions as to what amp to go for? I'm open to both tube and SS options.
Thanks for the suggestions in advance.
