Thanks for the link from the T1 thread.
I read your survey of different HPs with this Emotiva amp - very well written - and the traits you ascribe to each headphone very much ring true for me against my limited experience with those headphones but much reading of reviews.
And I'm really blown away by the current price of the mini-X a-100 - only $179. Seriously?
Have you tried the Topping TP60 Tripath TA2022 (T-amp)?
It has more or less the same specs (50Wpc into 8 Ohms) as the Emotiva, but I've only recently heard about them, too.
I've searched this thread briefly, but haven't found any mention of the Topping amp.
I've never heard either one - just wondering if you or anyone else has done a comparison.
