Amplifier for PS500, focus on mids.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'm very new to Grado but very much enjoying the sound, especially those mids! I'm looking for an amplifier to pair with the Grado PS500s, at the minute I only have a FiiO E10.

My priorities are seperation, soundstage (to some extent) and vocals/mids, my price range is variable, but I want to spend below £300 if possible, I'm willing to go higher if very necessary. 

I've yet to decide on a DAC yet too, however most insist that DACs change the sound in very subtle ways, if at all, therefore my DAC choice will be a little more utilitarian and price concious, but I don't want to skimp in the amp section.

 

I plan to use it with the PS500s, and in the future a closer, laid back headphone such as the Beyer T90 or alike, I'd like to keep priority on the PS500s for now however.

Wanted to add, the O2+ODAC is $285, which if I add customs to the UK would be about $375, which seems like a fairly good price.

You can also buy it from Epiphany Acoustics (located in the UK), without having to pay customs.

Oh fantastic, should save me a little on customs a little, it seems this may be the best for £200 as a dac/amp combined, but I can go higher (£400-500 being the maximum).

 

So any other recommendations are appreciated!
