I still like the gustard h10 for the 560. It was also fine with my senns and iems. Tons of power and tames the highs a bit. Used with upgraded opamps are $300.

Well, I ended up joining the drop on the NuForce HA-200. InnerFidelity's review recommended the amp for planars. It's a simple class A design with a single gain stage, which I like. The drop had it for $149.99 from $350 original MSRP, for which it sold until recently. And, as I discovered, it's very easy to switch between 115 V and 230 V voltage, which really suits me as I move between Europe and Japan often.

 

And then I got a bit carried away... A few guys here on head-fi recommended to go for 2 of the amps for that price and use them in a dual mono configuration. I liked the idea, it's just seems very badass to me to power the HE-560 with monoblocks :atsmile: and joined the drop for a second time.

 

So I blew my savings towards the amp I originally wanted to get (was considering Mjolnir 2 & MicroZOTL2), but I am happy with my choice. I can now try a truly balanced config, while using SE class A amps. And I can write you how I like the sound of it through the HE-560.

 

If I am not happy with the combo, I can still get one of the amps I wanted in the future, and can even use it as a preamp to the NuForce monoblocks, so I will have some interesting options :popcorn: 

 

Thanks all for your help and advice!
