"Rank the Headphones that You Own." thread was created for a long time and greatly contributed by everyone so i think it's quite interesting to make another thread but for headphone amps
. The rule is simple: only list amps that you own or have extensive time of listening by order from best to worse in your oppinion.
Here is my list:
1) Upgraded O2
2) 2 channel PPaV2 with opa1641
3) Stock O2/ Project sunrise II (k42-y9 bypass output capacitor, vitamin-Q bypass cathode, 6n23p-ev)
4) Grado Ra1 clone
5) Indeed G2 - 12au7 Gold Lion
6) Millet Starving Student (vitamin-Q bypass cathode, 12au7 GE)
7) Bravo V1 stock 6922EH
8) A47 Opa2227
9) Cmoy Opa2227

Apex Teton
ECP Audio L-2
Eddie Current Super 7

(The Apex Teton is the best I have ever owned and on another level from the L-2 and the S7, which are both excellent amps.)
