im new here, need suggestion to amplifiers for HD 650

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Be gentle, this is my first post ive made on this forum hehe.

I've been around this forum looking at thread's about everything that has to do with heaphones and amps etc. because i know you guys have a lot of experience.

I personally own a pair of HD650 that am in love with, using a Argon HA2 tube amp.

the problem is that i havent seen anyone reviewed this amp at all. and i want to use my hd650 to its best, but i also dont want to spend to much on a amp, can probably spend 850 dollar on an amplifier.

I listen to almost everything, its very mixed. i think the only thing i dont listen to is country music. i listen to, electronica, jazz, dance, hip hop, epic music, rock, metal, progressiv rock.

Do you guys have any suggestion to an amp that apply's good on my HD650 ? or is the amp i already own good enough, since i havent tried any other amps out there. i use mine to connect it via USB as DAC, and like to keep it that way if possible.

Here is a review:

Here are the specs from their site:

I cannot find the output impedance spec which would be useful.

 

Having not heard the amp nor familiarity with  Argon I would advice looking at other options.

 

I think the O2 amp is a much better option as it is designed to measure and sound good.  JDS  has been making these for a while now and the production runs are getting more consistent.

If you want a USB DAC you can add in the ODAC to the form the O2+ODAC Combo found here:

I have heard the combo and it compares very well against my much more expensive Grace Design m903.

 

Total Cost:

$300 or less shipped depending on where you live.
