Custom amp to compliment AKG K701's

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

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!

I really want a Lyr, but its out of my price range at this point which is why im taking the diy approach.

I had an Indeed V2 from eBay (uber-cheap hybrid tube), and it was pretty good with the K701 as well. You definitely need adequate current and high gain with them.
