amp in the $150 to $250 range

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Looking for a headphone amp, old one broke. The only options I have seen that people recommend are the Magni and the O2. I already have a DAC.

Budget -$150>$240ish

Source Computer>Schiit Modi>AMP HERE>NAD Viso HP50 headphones.

 

I only listen to music on my computer so I don't need portability at all. I'm not sure what the difference is from a cheaper amp to a more expensive amp. All I'm looking for is standard stuff: RCA/Power connections, a power switch, a volume knob, and a light that shows if the amp is on. Never was really interested in the tube amps (you have to replace the tubes after a while?) but open to anything (No Schiit products, though). Thanks.

Asgard 2 is around 250 if you have the extra 10 bucks. The O2 really is quite a nice amp though :D

Yeah the O2 definitely gets a lot of love. It seems to have a lot of bells and whistles on it which I have no idea what they do.

Why no Schiit? You could complete your Modi with a Magni/Vali
