...but I have audiophile aspirations. I would like to find a full sized headphone amp that would be able to drive the HE 6 and the Etymotic ER 4S. I would be buying for the future, since I have neither of these phones. I'm looking for a neutral amp. I'm not looking for pleasing coloration, but an analytical sound. I want the amp to reproduce the source exactly as it is. If the source is poor, so be it. presently, I have an AKG K 501, an unmodded Fostex T50 RP, and an Ultimate Ears Super-Fi Pro (that was bought before Logitech took over the company). I'm not sure about tubes,but I would prefer a solid state amp. Price range would be up to $1000, hopefully lower. Really, I'm trying to get the Stax SR009 experience as close as possible. I listen to all kinds of music, from classical to classic rock, and I'm willing to sacrifice coloration for acoustical truth. I hear so many good things about German, Chinese, and Korean amps, but frankly, I'm just confused and overwhelmed. I hope somebody can help. Thanks.
