Buying a desktop AMP in Canada, what to buy, where to buy?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello, I'm a bit lost here.

 

I'm looking to invest into a desktop amp.

 

  • I'm not sure what to buy.
  • I'm not sure where to buy. I'm from Canada.
  • Do I need any extra cord?
  • I'll be using it with HD650, on the computer
  • I have a Soundblaster ZxR
  • My budget is around $500, but feel free to recommend anything worth it in the 250-1000$ price range.

 

Thanks! :)

Here's an interesting amp in the for sale section right now that's way below your budget ceiling: http://www.head-fi.org/t/704235/w-s-a-cavalli-ckk-iii-price-drop

 

If you want a new amp I'd suggest you look into the Schiit Asgard2 and NuForce HAP-1000 - use the search function here to find reviews. Both are Class A amplifier designs so make sure wherever you place either it will get good airflow around them.

A minimal choice that works fine is O2 from JDS. Ask them about plugs, &c.

 

A $1k amp that I expect to be very well-made and performance is Violectric V200 (and their other amps).
