$500 New/Used amp for low and high impedence phones.

    Hey guys, I've recently purchased myself some HD650s and I am looking to grab myself some RS1s around Christmas. So.. I am after a great amp to drive these two cans. I am looking to get some opinions from people with experience with either of these phones with some amps around the $500 or less price range (new or used). Synergy is something I am trying to figure out. What will go well with both of these headphones?

    I am currently looking at the Mad Ear+ HD, the WA6 and the Burson HA-160, though I am sure there are others that would suit both of these well. Let me know what you think guys!

    Edit: A little more information. My DAC is the Audio-GD FUN with Earth OPA. My music tastes lay mainly in indie/rock/ambient/post-rock and a little metal.

    Do you not like the FUN with the HD650s?

    The Mad Ear+ HD is versatile- it has separate jacks for low and high impedance headphones.  It does sound great with both my RS-1 and HD600, and you could get relatively inexpensive tubes to suit their different signatures (e.g. Sylvania gray and black plate, respectively).  Haven't heard it with the HD650.
