So I just bought a pair of Beyer T1s, and am eager to find a good Amp/DAC combo for them (playing off a Macbook Pro.) My budget at this point is around $1k.
I've read the major T1 amp recommendation threads, looked at tons of reviews, etc etc, but could still use some advice. I know that the usual recommendation for the T1 is a WA2, but at ~$1200 for the amp alone, it's too expensive for me to justify. Here's what I'm looking at right now:
Pan-Am with Gateway ($650)
La Figaro 339/Darkvoice 337 (~$700) + Dacport LX (~$200)
Used Burson Soloist (~$700) + Dacport LX
Used Decware CSP2+ ($650) + "
Used Little Dot MKVI+ ($650) + "
Shiit Lyr ($450) + Shiit Bifrost ($350)
So, my question basically is, do you have a preference for one of these combinations/something I haven't thought of (particularly a different DAC).
