I already own the AKG Q701 and I'm planning on buying the HE-400 while on sale. I'm now looking for a good, full-sized amp to drive both of these headphones.
I was already set on the Schiit Lyr, which now sells for an amazing 300$ for B-stock. But, I'm form Europe and what costs you 300$, costs me 450$ (they don't offer EU plug for the B-stock) + 60$ in shipping + 150$ inm VAT and customs. So instead of 300$, I'd have to pay 660$, which is more than double. I also can't buy a used one because nobody sells one with an EU plug.
So, I'm looking for any other possible amp to match the HE-400 and Q701. I'd like:
-as much detail and transparency from the Q701 as possible and
-that signautre warm fun sound from the HE-400
-for less than 500$ shipped to EU.
Any recommendations are appreciated,
