Hey everyone! Long time lurker, first time poster here
I'm in the market for a decent headphone amp to pair with a couple pairs of headphones. Right now, I use some low impedance Sennheiser PC 360. However, I recently ordered some Beyerdynamic DT770 PRO 250 ohm, which obviously need something to properly power them. I also tend to borrow my friends AKG Q701's quite a bit, since he rarely uses them.
I'm hoping to find an amp that is versatile enough to power, and sound great with these headphones. My budget isn't too extravagant, I'm looking for something <$300. Portability is not an issue, and the amp will always be at my desk. I've narrowed my search down to two possible choices, but I'm also looking for recommendations
The Schiit Asgard & The Matrix M Stage
At first, I was pretty set on the Asgard, being American made, 5 year warranty, and positive reviews. After hearing it can be finicky with a few cans though, I stumbled upon the M Stage. Which also seems like a very viable contender.
I'm hoping to receive some input on anyone's experiences with these amps with the gear mentioned above, or possible recommendations.
Thanks in advance!
