T1 Recommended tube amplifiers

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I would like recommendations on a excellent sounding tube headphone amp for my Beyerdynamic T1's.  Right now I am using an Antique Sound Labs MG-OTL32 with all the best NOS tubes but I am looking for a substantial improvement overall.  My budget is around $1000 not including tubes.  I plan on retuning with premium NOS tubes.  Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks for looking

Hi,

 

Icon audio HP8 MKII

Great amp, my T1 was revealed through this amp (compared to Schiit Asgard and Teac HA-501, with which I missed either transparency and treble (asgard) or bass and body (Teac)))

With the Icon: full bodied sound, great bass, midrange and treble - everything is here, vibrant

 

Really wonderful combination - several reviews available on the web (innerfidelity and others)

+1 I had the HP8 MKII with my T1 - only got rid of it cos it needed to downsize from a desktop amp, but it's a fine combo. As is always said when someone starts yet another (tube) amp for T1 thread though, check out the main T1 impressions thread for suggestions :-D
