Amp for T5Ps but for future higher-impedance headphones

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I currently have a Musical Fidelity V-Can but I want something better. The headphones I'm currently using the most are my Beyerdynamic T5p which have a low impedance of 32 ohms. But I also have hd650s and eventually want to get something from Audeze. I want a new amp that costs less than 700$ and that can drive both lower and higher impedance headphones well. I was checking Wa3 but it seems it doesn't shine with low impedance cans. Schiit Lyr? Burson Soloist SL? Keep what I have? Thanks!

The Burson has the Variable Output Stage and the Schiit Asgard 2 has a high/low gain switch.  These are the types of features you will need.  On the other hand, the Lyr does not and is designed to power hard to drive dynamic and ortho cans.  I am not as familiar with the WA 3, but believe that it has only one output level setting.

That's pretty good advice, it seems I'll go for the Asgard. Thanks!
