Just pulled the plug on some of these priceless beauties. Going to sell my HE-500's. I wonder if I should still be looking at the Emotiva mini-x or the Lyr.
Any insight would be appreciated from LFF or anyone else who starts getting these headphones :)
I've been getting a TON of questions regarding amps and which ones I use.
Here is the honest answer:
I use two main custom amps.
1) Custom: was designed for me by DBel84 and it's a solid state beast. It outputs 85 Watts per channel.
2) Custom: was designed by Alex Cavalli and built by DBel84. It's a Stacker tube amp and it sounds phenomenal.
That's ACTUALLY what I use. You can check my profile for DAC, etc.
As for amps that I would recommend....well...I HIGHLY recommend amps from the following:
1) Craig from Eddie Current
2) Alex from Cavalli
3) Jason from Schiit
All their amps have a magical synergy that I really enjoy with my headphones. Only reason I don't own their products is because I can't really afford them but if you can....get them. All offer exceptional build quality and sound.
