Hi folks!


AKG K701 is a very popular headphone in the community and there are a number of amplifiers that work well with it. I just haven't been able to locate all of them in this part of Europe. I have selectd the following as possible contenders:


Lake People G103

Lake People G105

Meier Audio Rock

Meier Audio Jazz

Musical Fidelity V90 HPA

Schiit Asgard 2


This would be a present for someone I care about and who will no doubt use it with analogue sources (primarily (tape and vinyl) and so the amplifiers must feature analogue inputs as I know some recent models feature only digital inputs. 


My price limit for this amplifier is 300 Euro but if for a little bit extra something better can be had, then I am open to suggestions. 


I have set several criteria: 


- power supply must be internal (no wallwart transformers)

- enough current to drive the K701 to satisfying volume level

- solid metal construction


Thanks for all your help!
