I'm looking for a decent headphone amp or DAC/headphone amp in the price range of $1-2K for driving the LCD-X. However, it must meet the following condition: it should have a pair of RCA outputs (whether in the form of line level output from DAC or bypass loop output). Right now, I could think of three gears that fit this description: WA7 Fireflies (not the upcoming WA7d), Burson Conductor, and Fosgate Headphone Amplifier.
Which do you guys recommend for the LCD-X in particular? Or, if there is another headphone amp or DAC/amp I haven't mentioned that fits the bill and works great with the LCD-X, I'd be more than happy to hear you out.
You may want to consider the Dangerous Source. It has a superb quality DAC and a very good amplifier. It does a great job with the LCD-X. The line-outs are 1/4", but that just means you'd need an adapter or different cable to connect to rca inputs--no big deal. It runs around $900 here.
