Before I purchase lets double check this

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I am about to purchase a glow amp one, but before I do I want to make sure that they are fully compatible with my audeze lcd-2s.

 

This is kinda nooby but I would hurt myself if I bought a $900 amp and it didn't work.

 

I will be using the dac that comes free with the amp.  Is this dac a decent starter dac? I will buy a better one later on.

 

 

If you have amything that you would like to suggest (such as a better amp/dac combo) I would love to hear it :) budget is $1000

Heya,

 

I think the Glow One outputs only 600mW for headphones maximum @ 32ohms. So at the higher impedance of the LCD2, it will output even less current. For speakers it outputs 5 watts maximum, so even if you use taps, it translates to being just a few milliwatts again.

 

I wouldn't get that for an ortho.

 

Look into speaker amps in the 40~50 watt at 8ohm range for a good level of current output.

Match with a nice tube DAC, if you want tubes involved.

 

Very best,
