Hi all, I recently bought a few gears and think the Amp is the bottleneck of my system now.
Akg k701, Beyerdynamic T50p, Denon D7000, Audeze LCD-2 and maybe a few more cans @ 600ohms
To be quite honest, I am not happy with the Matrix m-stage performance and I think it is really overrated regarding the synergy paired with k701
Therefore I was thinking about either a schiit lyr or schiit valhalla, but I heard from a review that the valhalla can't drive most orthos...
Thus I am wondering is there anything that's subtantially better than the LYR under 600 dollars? I can stretch my budget a little if necessary, like about 100-200 more.
It has to be able to drive the lcd-2 well(duh!), so if it sucks at everything else and please the lcd-2, then i'm more than happy.
Thanks in advance

The type of music I listen most is:
Female vocal(from english to mandarin to japanese to spanish to everything), classical music, some opera, pop, hiphop, r&b, pure instrumental.... so pretty much everything but the order goes descendant.
