Need some advice Amp for HE-500

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone looking for some advice i have my heart set on getting a pair of Hifiman HE-500 and im also looking for a nice Amp to complement it.

 

Now i have been reading and searching for a couple of months now with my budget of about £200-£250. I have narrowed down to -

 

Matrix M-Stage

Schiit Asgard

 

Was also looking at the Aune S2 Panda MKII but not really found anything on this amp it looks lovely. Does anyone know if it can drive Ortho's?

 

Also was gutted to find out Little Dot MKIV isn't that great for driving Ortho's as that was at the top of my list.

 

Thanks for any help you can give me, I have been pulling my hair out.

What about getting an integrated speaker amp? I'll be trying this out myself, when I have got the right cable made.

I was thinking about this, only problem was the HE-500 are not going to be my only headphones. I will be picking up others, so was wanting a Amp that can drive the HE-500 to a good standard, while still being able to drive Dynamic headphones up to 600ohms

Alright. I think I would get the Lake People G103 (I'm a bit colored as I use their G100 myself):

I was looking at that amp's bigger brother the G109s after reading the review on Innefidelity.

 

Going to go have a look at the G103s.
