I am looking for a nice looking tube amp, that will run my K240's well, and can be used as a pre-amp.
I don't really want to be spending more than $150, although I can go higher, $200 at most.
If it has a DAC in it, that is a plus.
I was looking at the little dot mkii, although it's power output isn't that high at 55 ohms.
If there are some good solid state amps at the price point, that perform well, I would not limit myself to tubes.
There is a Maverick Audio TubeMagic D1 for sale, on the Australian ebay, that will probably go for $150 - $175.
It doesn't have the amazing tube looks though. Would it be worth it at that price?
I was also thinking of the Xiangsheng tube hybrid H-80BIII, although I can't seem to find anywhere to buy them.
I am willing to DIY.
