I'm currently using the Denon D2000's out of a Zune and a Fiio E5. They sound great to me just with the E5 powering them, but from what I heard I'm missing out on the full sound I could be getting with my Denon's. I bough a PA2v2 but the E5 powers my Denon's just as well. I just ask for suggestions for an amp that would power them well without spending too much money, I'm not going to set a budget but I'm not going to buy the best amp out there, I'd just like an idea of an amp I could get that would be just good enough to power them well. I've heard good things about the LittleDot and E7/E9 combo. I'd also like other suggestions as well.
A few more things, I'd like an amp that will give me a good amount of bass, and I'll be running it exclusively out of a Zune HD so I don't need a DAC. I'll make a budget around $200.
I've also been looking at the Ibasso T3, can anyone comment on that?
I also just recently picked up a pair of Denon 2k's, I'm loving them and now looking around at amp options to see how much better I could get them. Feeling a bit swamped reading tons of reviews, tech specs and large monetary price tags, so would appreciate someone helping us both out.
So far myself I've been looking pretty hard at:
Headroom Total Bithead
Meir Corda Headsix
Part of me is almost tempted to spring for a Stepdance or Headstage Arrow, but as I've never heard a headphone amp before, and am still unsure exactly what they do, it's hard to justify spending more than I did on my headphones.
