I'm new to the portable audio world and I've been doing a lot and a lot of reading. I am now ready to invest in a portable headphone amp. There are so many reviews and of course so many opinions on the various amps. Before a take the plunge, I figured I'd ask for other opinions to help me to choose an amp.
The cans I plan on using are the AKG K550 with an iPod Classic. I don't really plan on listening to music through my PC so it's not necessary for the amp to have a DAC.
The amps I've been considering are the following and they are all within my budget.
RSA P-51 Mustang
RSA The Predator
Meier Audio 2Stepdance
Leckerton UHA-6S MKII
According to Skylab's review of 56 amp roundup, I would go for the 2Stepdance or the P-51 Mustang, but the review was last updated 2 years ago.
So any help or guidance would be appreciated.
