Well, thread title says it all. The K-550 are fantastic but with the majority of source material they just highlight how cold, harsh and flat the mixes are. Well, nothing you can do about the flat but the cold harshness can surely be battled.
So I want an amp that ads a nice warm touch, maybe simply rolls off the highs naturally but does not compromise the great soundstage too much. Ah heck, I even take that if the price is right. Power is not really a topic since the K-550 drive so easily.
