Amp/DAC for AKG-K712

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I was wondering if anyone here could recommend an amp for a pair of AKG-K712's, I was thinking about getting the schiit audio valhalla-2 and the bifrost dac or the magni/modi combo but wasn't sure which to get or if there is something that would be better for the headphones.

You might consider reading up and asking questions about the K712 on this thread.

AFAIK the Valhalla is optimized for higher impedance headphones, so don't expect the best results. K701/2 were known to pair best with the Heed CanAmp. I haven't heard them myself but from what I did get to try with those the Burson Soloist (and by extension the Conductor) was the absolute best, totally blew my Meier Cantate.2 (even when driving the HD600) into a far 2nd spot. However when you factor in prices, well, I decided to stick with my HD600 and Cantate.2.

 

In any case, for other amp choices, best consult that thread posted by PurpleAngel and see what other people recommend next to the CanAmp.

I just got the Meier Corda Rock and am using it with my K612s. Sounds quite good. It is $195 shipped. Here is a review: http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/meier-audio-corda-rock-budget-headphone-amplifier
