Ive been wanting to build a pimeta-2 amp to compliment my (wonderful) akg k701's. I want to bring out the bass a little and give enough power to really drive these power hungry phones. All suggestions are welcome, such as which op-amps to use or even other amps besides the pimeta that would be a better fit for me.

The Schiit Lyr is the best I have heard the K701 sound and I've tried quite a few amps with them. If you are set on going DIY though I have no idea. Perhaps see if you could reverse engineer one!
