I just hooked up two wave 8 amps to drive a AKG K1000 headphone. Essentially in parallel, I also hooked up an Antique Sound Lab AQ-1005DT. The price difference between these amps is very substantial. The wave 8s cost approx. $225, while the 1005DT costs more than $1,600. It's amazing that I can't hear a real difference between these amps. Both kinds of amps sound absolutely wonderful through the K1000. So, what's to conclude? First conclusion is that the wave 8s are really fine amps, and the second conclusion is that I probably wasted my money on the AQ-1005DT.

Thanks for your imput on the subject , my conclusion (I hope) is Im going to order 5 of the amps and run them in my listen room/home theater/getaway from the family room , if worse case maybe its time to down size the magnapans and go with something else, just the thought of 5 of those cool little amps lined up is to much to resist
