From most other forums I've been a part, of I know newbs need to do intros. I thought this was the most appropriate section so here we go.
A little about me, I am a audio hobbyist (a bit of an overstatement lol). I started out with home audio, a modest RTA8 Polks matched with Denon/Adcom separates. With work and all, I haven't been able to really use my home set up so on to portables I went. I've been a lurker for close to a year now just self teaching and learning.
Started with Sansa Clip Zip+ and Silver Bullets v2.
Recently just got the Hifiman HM601 and decided I want much more detail in my music so I went with an HD668 due to budget constraints. I must say, I am very impressed with the clarity and detail and it's exactly what I wanted on clarity. However, coming from SBs I do miss a bit of the warmth and a smidge of the sound stage.
Hence the question of amp choice. Aside from the warmth and sound stage, I really feel like there isn't that much room with the hm601 in driving the Superlux (I got it set at 8-9), and I figured an amp would solve that. As far as amp choices, I'm looking at these:
1. JDS cMoy BB
1. Basically from what research I've done, a lot of people have suggested the JDS for warmth and sound stage. I am however worried I am going to lose some of the resolution/detail that I am enjoying now. With the added warmth, could this be the case?
2. It's fairly neutral but I am looking for a bit of warmth.
3. From what I've read, it is the least technical of the 3.
Any suggestions? I did read a few of JDS/superlux combo, but they were at least a year or so old and I am seeing if there are any new inputs. Thanks!
