Tube amp for LCD2 and W1000x

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I'm currently have a Little Dot MKIII to drive my LCD2 and W1000x. The sound is good but i think not optimally. I want to go a class above and buy a new tube amp. My budget is 700USD. I read a lot about the Schiit Lyr and the Woo Audio 6. Very interesting because of the nice design is the Little Dot MK VI+. But i don't know how it sounds.

Could somebody recommend me a better tube amp as the MKIII for my 2 headphones?

I buy the Lyr

From everything I've read, the LCD-2 pairs much better with the Lyr than the Woo 6.  Keep in mind that I've never heard this pairing, but I've read up on the pairing.

I happened to have auditioned LCD-2 from both Lyr and WA6 SE. I would buy the Woo Audio amp anyday.

WA6 SE cost 1050USD. That's not in my budget.

I have heard LCD2 with WA5 and even this was not optimal according to me. I think most of the tube amps don't will be ideal for LCD2 because of their darker character. 

 

edit: perhabs Violectrc V200 as quite well approciate here will be better option and more universal.

What are you using as a source?

 

Not what you're asking for I realize, but also look at the nfb-10
