I am currently running my th900 with Chord Mojo which is great but wouldnt mind adding a little more fullness to the sound. What is a good amp to achieve this? I could utilize the chord's dac if just a standalone amp.

If you want end game material, Mjolnir Audio Pure BiPolar. This will add new dimensions to your bass. This and the HeadAmp GS-X Mk2 tower over all other retail solid state headphone amps I know of. You'll need a balanced cable for the headphone, and a 3.5mm -> dual RCA cable for the Mojo with two female RCA to male XLR adapters.

Heya! i used to own the Fostex TH-900 mk2, at the time i used a Violectric HPA 200 amp with optional dac inside (see my sig), and it sounded great to me. loads of power for the Fostex, violectric makes fantastic amps!

yesterday I tried the ifi can pro and the ear hp4
I like the ifi in all valve mode
but the ear and fostex is a match made in heaven, the headphone scale up more than the utopia
another confirmation that for my taste these two headphone sounds better from a warm musical amplifier

I've never demod a pair of Utopias. i dont even personally know anyone that has a pair.
but will say, despite the comfort, the 900's are great great great! if i were you, i'd keep them forever. they're not a pair you can replace easily and they're very unique. sometimes i regret selling mine, but then i remember the headband and... yeah.. lol

Have you tried the 909s ?
