Good amp for DT 880 600 Ohms?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
As the title says, what are some good amps for the Beyerdynamic DT 880 600 ohms? I have a budget of around $500.

Thanks

Bump.

Mine sound awesome with my Schiit Lyr.  My RSA amp can also do a great job driving the 880s.

Any idea of how the Valhalla would sound with them? I plan on buying the Bifrost along with the amp and the cost of the Bifrost and the Lyr would be a bit over my budget.

Only what I've heard, the Valhalla is supposed to have great synergy with high Z phones...

Great! Out of curiosity, do you have any other amp+DAC recommendations for the 880s? My budget is now $700 by the way.

The CEntrance DACMini is about that much and it's VERY good. If you want to up your budget by about 300% I have some other suggestions here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/653102/most-powerful-dac-amp-all-in-one  It's definitely cheaper to go separates if you have the space.

No, I'm just really digging my Bifrost / Lyr combo right now.

 

But to be honest, I have also recently acquired some Audeze LCD-2s, I'm thinking the DT-880s might not get that much head time for a few weeks (months)...

Does anyone have any other suggestions? I am looking for tube amps specifically, though for the DAC I do not really care. I just something good. Again my budget is now $700.
