DOWN TO $100!!

This amp is comparable to a m3 or PPA.
It is a TPA6120 based amp built by Kenny12 from DaKiller's designs, christened, the DTPAKILLER. It is housed in a Computer PSU case and looks like this

Sound-wise there's plenty of power in this amp and it drives my beyer dt-531 and MS-2's better than my portaphile V2^2 tightening up the bass greatly when compared to the portaphile. This is a very fast and forward amp, not suited to classical listening or going the laid back approach to music, but for sheer speed, power and clean tight low-end and crisp detail makes it a perfect complement to not only my dt-531 but also Alessandro and Grado headphones.
