    Amp, or better headphones?

    Hi all, new here. I am just getting into higher end audio stuff. I already have a CD player picked out as a source. My main question is this: I have ~300 or 400 bucks to spend on headphones + an amp. I listen to 99% metal so I have decided that I want Grados after a bit of research. Would I be...

    Dedicated amplifer for my Stax SR-5/SRD-7. Suggestions?

    I recently purchased the Stax and was planning on hooking them up to a Nakamichi SR-2, but discovered to my dismay that the receiver had died. I`m therefore looking to buy an amplifier or receiver that will only be used for the Stax. No speakers will be hooked up to it. I`m hoping to get away...
