My new pair of LCD-Xs will soon be arriving. I was wondering if you all had some suggestions on AMPs/DACs to go with them. I was eyeing the Bifrost Asgard 2 combo but would like some other suggestions as I've heard mixed reviews with that and the LCD phones.
Fist thing, definitely looking for something solid state at this point. Cleaner drier highs and punchier bass. I'll probably grab a tube amp down the line for classical listening. As of now though, I listen to a lot of electronic, think Sphongle and Siruismo, and I'm looking for a stack to complement my tastes. Maybe something ~$1000? The LCD-Xs being so much easier to drive than the LCD2s-3s the DAC is probably going to mean more than the AMP; I'm guessing.
Any suggestions are welcome as, while I have done a good bit of research, my knowledge level doesn't even begin to touch some of yours when it comes to audio and equipment.
Mods, this is a crosspost from headphones (full-size) as I did not read the rules thoroughly enough and posted in the wrong place about 24 hours ago. Link to my first post if it should be deleted.
