Hi, I'm looking for an amp to pair with my HE-400, Fidelio X1, and Q701. I am currently using a X3 to drive them, but I want a real desktop rig. My budget for the amp is $200 but I would be willing to go over a bit if the performance is worth it. I've heard that the M-Stage pairs well with these HPs, and the Vali as well. I was considering the Audio Gd 15.32 but it seems to be out of stock. The Little Dot I+ and Project Ember also interests me but I'd have to do more research into what tubes to get for them and the cost for tube rolling would ramp up the costs. I'll probably get an Odac as well. Please advise me on what pairs best with my HPs. Thanks!
