ATH-W1000X Help for new amp

Discussion in 'Headphone Amps (full-size)' started by pororom, May 24, 2011.

    I own a ATH-W1000X connected to an amp. Rega Ear and I want to make a better amp. for a warmer sound.
    I have understood that the best options within my budget range would be a Woo Audio 6, an HP 8 MKII Audio Icon or Burson HA160.
    Please tell me which you think best for the type of music I hear it's only classical music, and my Rega Ela speakers are few that offer a very musical sound which is what I like.

    Welcome to head-fi!
    Im also a classical music listener, and i have a setup with the Burson HA-160/w1000x's. I made a detailed review on my sig...you can check it. 
    All i can say, they are for each other.. a nice match!

    More opinions?
    Especially if anyone has tried or owns the Icon Audio HP 8 MKII compared to Musical Fidelity XCAN v8P in relation to its sweetness and musicality.

    I'd go for the Burson if you need a versatile amp, with driving power. It brings out the best of the ATH series. 
    Haven't used the models mentioned, i cant comment.

    W1000X on Yamamto HA-02 is very very nice. I can wholeheartedly recommend it, if you wanted a setup with huge details, the Audio Technica HA5000 would still be the ultimate choice.

    EDIT: Seems you wanted a warmer sound, so Yamamto HA-02, the HA5000 does not warm the sound much.
