Good Amp for Denon D7000 - Page 2

I went the simplest/cheapest way and built a 2 channel amp.  The gain you want won't affect the price of the amp, but must be specified as there is no good way to implement a gain switch.  The amount of channels you want will affect the price, by a good amount.

I've been meaning to ask this question ,the opportunity just hasn't really risen: I know number of channels make a difference but what exactly does it do?

WA6-SE. many members (silent one, ahzari, myself, and a few others) have enjoyed the combination very much.

You prefer the WA6SE over the WA2? A review I read on cnet gave the edge to the WA2, but they were testing with other headphones as well as the D5000 and D7000.

my WA2 cannot properly drive the D7000 or any low impedance for that matter, a few other members have had the same issue, though many seem to be able to drive them fine.

 

i can't get them loud with WA2, but at the lower volumes it can play them on, they seem to be sweeter, very lush, with bloomy bass, very tubey, romantic sound. but they won't sound as clean as with the WA6-SE.

The WA2 is more tubey than the WA6, no doubt, but some of that is confounded by the high output impedance of the WA2 and the low impedance of the D7000.  That can loosen up and bloat some of the sound due to the mismatch.
