Right now I'm amping my HD650 with the internal amp of the Benchmark DAC1. Plenty of power, but the sound signature is reportedly on the lean side. Or perhaps there is no real sound signature as it is meant to be very neutral.
Anyway, the bass output on my HD650 is not overly satisfying at the moment, not even as satisfying as my ATH-M50's (and I have the 'new' version of the M50's which are supposed to be lighter on bass), and I hope it could improve with amplification?
What solid state amps bring out the best bass response in the HD650's? And achieve this without bass-boost features (which I am not keen on)? Or do I need to look at tube amps to get the best bass response? And how much would the bass response improve - can I expect it to compete with my M50's when amped right?
