I'm looking for a small amp to use exclusively for my DT 770 Pro-250s. My Dac is a Fiio E10, but I'd like a higher-quality amp. While portability is not a factor since this amp will be used at home only, I posted this in the portable section since both the amps I'm looking at are designed for on-the-go use. The first is a Biosciencegeek Cmoy, which I've used before, and know I will be satisfied with. So why wouldn't I go with that? Well, I saw this on the forums the other day:
It's just sooooooo attractive. Yes, I know it won't be of the caliber of a normal tube amp, but I don't need anything outlandish for my DT 770s. However, I can't audition this little guy, and sending it back to it's home in Australia would be too expensive to be worth it, so if I go for fred_fred's tube-based cmoy, there's no going back. And since I know I like the normal cmoy, either decision is likely permanent :P So my question is, should I go for the Tube Cmoy or the BSG Cmoy? I'd like to stay as close to the natural sound of the DT 770s as possible. DAC will still be a Fiio E10, source is Aiffs, Wavs, and lossy files on a Macbook. I listen to almost everything, but it's Alt Rock and EDM most of the time. And if you have any other recommendations in relatively the same price tier, let me know. Thanks for your help, I'm really freaking out about this decision (As most of my headphone purchases :P).
In MalVeauX we trust.
