Hello folks, after some light researching on these forums, i am planning on jumping the Amp Bandwagon!


Sources
* iBook (headphone jack / USB)
* Macbook (headphone jack / Optical Out / USB)
* iPod Shuffle ( i don't think i will use tha amp as a portable )

My Headphones:
* Sennheiser 280 Pro
* Grado SR60 (i detest the pads, so itchy, i have to buy new ones, suggestions?)
* JVC Marshmallows


So, i was planning on spending around $100 (less or a little more). These products have raised interest in me:

* Go Vibe (5 or 6?) (low gain, high gain?)
* Total Airhead ($99)
* Total Bithead (double of what i would like to spend on an experiment, but it has USB in)
* M-Audio Transit (http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_us/Transit-main.html) - $100
* M-Audio Audiophile USB (this is too expensive - $250)
* M-Audio Fast Track USB (this looks like an in between at $130).


Suggestions, ideas and comments are welcome!

Hi, the audiophile usb doesn't actually sell for that much (do a search). i got mine for 99 dollars and i've seen them go for around 70 on ebay. keep in mind that it is also a dac/transport/recording interface and amp at the same time.
