Which amp???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have a pair of beyer 990/250 and have been looking to buy my first amp. I don't want to spend more than $300.  I was leaning toward either the m-stage or the cute beyond.  Any suggestions?  Am I getting that much more spending 100 more if an m-stage?  Is there an amp you like better in the price range?  Any help would be great.

 

Thanks.

I just picked up the Schiit Asgard and it pairs amazingly well with my DT990 600 ohms.

Thanks.  That was one I was looking at so maybe I should reconsider it.  Some reviews said it ran hot and had a slight hum to it.

Mine has no hum.  The transformer hum has been fixed months ago.  It's heat is overblown.  My Asgard runs cooler than my Woo 3 tube amp.  I guess if people have never used a class A amp before, the heat may be surprising.  It's nothing to worry about.  Class A amps are warm.

I've heard good things about the synergy of the Bellari 540 with beyers. Take a look at it.
