Well, i honestly don't know what to get for the sub $1000 range (not just amp, but dac too), and I heard good things about the wa7. I prefer SS for amps but w/e, any other suggestions then? Oh and I may need them to pair with the hd800 well too, I may get them as a compliment
DACmini may pair well with 3, but does not pair well with 800 based on sound signature. (Caveat: WA7 based on comments, DACmini I heard, but not with 800).
3 and 800 are going to different direction, its quite tricky to find amp that sound signature match both at the same time.
