I am hunting for an amp for the HD800. I had some time spent on trying some more popular brands locally available. The amps that I tried on the HD800:
I found that the Phonitor performs the best for the HD800 for my taste (I listened to Pop, Jazz and Classical). However, I still wonder if anything else, would outperform the Phonitor. After some time reading on the internet, and my personal consideration of not using the tube amp (due to the hot weather here), I have shortlisted the last two candidates that I wonder may....perhaps have a better performance on the HD800 than the Phonitor:
Headamp GS-X MK2
I could get a reach on the rudistor and have a try on it as there are dealer here. However, probably it would be difficult for me to try the Headamp for comparison.
Any hands on experience on comparing these two or to the Phonitor?
Last, I also have some CIEM/IEM and if could also hook it up to the headphone amp that will be a bonus for me.
