cmoy is your friend...

 

get the cmoybb if you can...

 

the lower powered fiios struggle to produce authoritive sound... They sound strained...

 

to drive the m-50s get a cmoy...

I would recommend staying away from random cmoy's on ebay.. But from somewere like jds labs.

I would recommend the fiio E5 over the E6, the E5 is better IMO.

I would recommend you consider the PA2v2.

Also, wait until you try the headphones with the player, you might not need an amp at all.

well, I can't compare them with experience, but I can say the pa2v2 is a nice amp for the price and a good starter amp, so long as you don't mind the bulk of it. It should be easy to find a used, but like new one here on the trade forums for your price.

yeah, the pa2v2 should give you plenty of power..

For a good amount of more money you could get an amp that measures a bit better and has more power (matrix m-stage, objective 2). But, I sincerely doubt you'd hear much of a difference with the m50, you might not even need the pa2v2. Just depends on your source.
