sorry new here. if i do something wrong, pls let me know :P
i own T1 and HD650, am looking for an amp and dac which will match both pretty well.
currently, i have a tiny and lovely Fiio E17. it is mainly for my iems, but does help a lot to power hd650.
i asked the same question in other posts.
one of the reason i start this thread is while many ppl recommended is meier audio concerto, but i just could not find it anywhere.
on their website (http://www.meier-audio.homepage.t-online.de/amplifiers.htm), the closest (by appearance) is corda classic + corda daccord. is corda classic same as corda concerto?
my budget is $1000 (including shipping, etc). i dont mind buying the amp first (without a proper amp, T1 is totally useless) and get a dac later when i have more fund. but if $1k can bring me a good set of good value, i will go for it.
the current top 1 option is still A1. i know it goes pretty well with T1, but dont know if it is as friendly with HD650. (another reason i have not pull the triger is i really dont want to buy a step-down transformer to go with the US version A1, but it is not a biggie..)
wa2 tube is over $1k + plus shipping, so at this stage, i will pass it.
the last, i am flying to hawaii next month from sydney, is it possible i can find anything good in, say honolulu? so i can avoid the tax + gst charged by AU goverment
