Just received my HD650's, and i'm enjoying the sound alot; however, i'd like to buy an amp to go with it as to improve the sound quality - My budget is around $250, although this can be changed if needed. All my music is FLAC/320kB mp3 and it's currently plugged into my (extremely terrible) laptop.

How would you rate the SQ of Magni/Modi?post #4 of 81/16/13 at 2:47am
its supposed to sound very similar to the O2, which is pretty good.
after that magni/modi combo came out, i don't think you can get anything better for only 200 dollars.
and if you're driving your hd 650s without an amp, once you amp them, you will hear a very noticeable difference, basically night and day difference.post #5 of 81/16/13 at 3:44ampost #6 of 81/16/13 at 3:45ampost #7 of 81/16/13 at 4:07am
