Amp recommendations for Fostex TH900? - Page 8

post #106 of 339

Although the Fostex HP-A8 is still within the realm of possibilities, I just fell into the Resonessence Concero DAC which I like VERY much and has all that I need.  So now I am on the hunt for a dedicated amp around the $1,000 range. 

 

A couple in mind:

 

Violectric V200

Burson Soloist

 

Any other suggestions to look into within the price range? Or opinions?

 

Thanks!

I know it sounds unlikely, but I hear only very marginal improvements of the conductor over just the C4 with the phone....with the sl I hear no improvement.....sorry guys.

Well that makes sense given one is a dac on a portable music player and the other is a dedicated DAC :)

I have the HP-A8 and I am happy with it.

I am considering getting a tube amp for just to mix things up a little.

 

Any suggestions? budget around 1K.

Thanks.

I've been reading good things about the Auralic Taurus MKII but it's way out of your budget.  You might want to check the Burson Soloist, as I have heard some people are enjoying it with the TH900 but i haven't heard it myself.

Just purchased a Burson Soloist to pair up with my TH900's.  I can hardly wait. :)

What I meant is that upgrading DACs usually only yields subtle changes so your results seem appropriate :-D

What should I concentrate on then to get the best from the 900's?

I've used iPhone 5, HM901 w/ both IEM and Minobox cards, AK120, HPA8, Soloist and Herus to pair w TH900, all sound pretty decent, the HPA8 is so far my favorite. But I'd be happy any setup, other than the phone alone. Now it's permanently hooked up w HP-A8.
