I know these headphones haven't been released yet, but does anyone have any recommendations for a good desktop amp that might pair well and drive the HE-560 easily, preferably in the $200-500 range? Of course this would all just be conjecture but I thought I'd ask since news on the HE-560/400i has been slow as of late and I wanted to start searching for possible amps I could buy for it in the future. I currently just have an E12 that I thought would hold me over until I get a proper desktop amp.
Project Ember and Garage 1217s upcoming solid state would probably be great contenders at that price. Schiit seems to have great choices as well. So many choices considering the new line-up are marketed to be efficient. I would still lean towards 1000mW however, just because Orthos and ample headroom are a good thing to have.
