Amp for Denon D2000 on a budget - Page 2

post #16 of 23
Thread Starter 

still looking at the e9 atm, but have also started looking at the o2 amp, however with my DIY abilities not being the best, im not sure how comfortable i would feel ordering the parts and building it, maybe if there was a step by step guide somewhere for it.

 

It is also £100 for a prebuilt one.

£30 more than the FiiO

Find a used O2.

The Xonar Essence ST works great with the Denon's, so if you need both head-amp and sound card that's something to consider.

You could probably get a used on cheap.

 

Cheers!

you can just watch what items go for in the sale forum.  Most poeple sell things for appropriate prices.

The guy who designed the Objective 2, is nick named "Lord Voldemort".

We have to use a nick name because "Lord Voldemort" was kick off Head-Fi and using his real name or linking to him is against Head-Fi rules.

So anyway do a search for "Objective 2" on the Internet and you will find his website, read up on what he has to say about headphone amplifier impedance.

You might rethink some of your headphone amplifier choices.

 

I still think the Fiio E11 with a few spare batteries and a simple battery recharger is the cheapest ($85) and a decent (wise) choice.

Have you heard of a UK brand called Fatman, they do tube amp for headphone. My cousin has one of them and they sound pretty good!!
