I'm new in this forum and in the Hi-Fi world. I just bought a pair of Beyerdynamic DT880 (250ohm) a few months ago. I found they were the best overall-sounding headphones in their price range. I love their clear, cristal sound... have no complaint about their sound quality. However, I currently drive them with an Audinst HUD-MX2 DAC/AMP, wich (I think) has a neutral sound signature. To my ears, the output sound of this combo, in the most of genres I listen, lacks in terms of musicality. Slightly recessed mids, non convincing bass and harsh, sometimes piercing highs.
So, I plan to buy a tube amp in order to add warmth. I'm looking for fuller, realistic bass, more vocal presence and smoother highs. Overall a funier, lively sound but without losing the inherent clarity of these cans. I'm not a "basshead" and I'm not looking for a too dark sound, just want to get away from that cool'n'dry, metallic digital sound.
I think the Little Dot MKIII is a good choice for the price, and I really like the tube rolling posibilities on it. Reading to the Tube Rolling Thread you have for this amp, I think a pair of Mullard M8161 could give me what I'm looking for.
Do you think is it a good idea? Please give me some advice.
Thanks in advance,
