Is still a great amp for the money? I was originally looking at some ~$300 tube amps (LD MKIII/IV, Vahalla) for my HD650s but I find myself drifting to thoughts of HE-500s and most entry class tube amps seem to power either the HD650s well or the HE-500s well but not both.
It seems that for $280 the HA-006+ is a pretty great value and some of the adjectives I've heard used to describe it are exactly what I'm after (slightly warm, smooth).
Some other amps in the price range that have my interest are:
NFB-12 (Would be nice to have optical in, not running a DAC just out of my Auzentech Forte, but I've heard the NFB-12 is too warm for the HD650)
Anything else I should consider?
