I'm feeling the upgrade-itis itch and I'm thinking about getting a tube amp for some extra listening pleasure.
As I'm a poor student, a large amount of my listening is done through spotify (on the highest quality it does... yes I know it's only 320kbit/sec) while I build up a respectable CD collection (it's only around 50-60 at the moment).
And thus I'd like to get a USB DAC and compatible tube amp. My budget of £1000 led me to the WA7 or the Schitt Valhalla/Bifrost combo
My cans for use with such a purchase would be the DT990s (250Ohm), The HD25-1 II, the Grado SR80i and A pair of AKG K701s are soon to join the family.
I'd like to hear your thoughts on this and any other recommendations would be gratefully received. (bear in mind the £1000 budget has to cover the shipping costs to the UK and import taxes, etc...)
Cheers in advance
