Just have to skip the sidegrading and keep three different amps and a collection of headphones to create the combo that best fits your mood. :)

...I have experienced less expensive, and MORE expensive, and for the latter, I never found the cost to justify the inconsequential improvement...

...I do find it fun to try a bunch of headphones, but when it comes to source and amp, I'm of the "get something you feel is good enough" camp, and worry mainly about the actual transducers.
Yep...same here!

There @Jason Stoddard goes applying logic and reason to a hobby where logic and reason have no business. :D

Correction, something by SCHIIT that is a Magni/Modi in one chassis. I want something aesthetically pleasing as well, IMHO of course.

I've already had dac/amps from other manufacturers of varying price levels. I really kinda just want the Schiits. :wink:

I would already be the owner of a Lyr 3 with multibit dac module if I could afford it, but I'd happily take something of that ilk for half the cost, hence why I'd like previously mentioned M/M all in one.

Pretend someone was to use multiple Vidars and Aegirs to control a myriad of speakers.
Pretend he/she wants to control each L/R-set separate in output volume.
Is there a pre-amp that can separately control multiple output channels?
Like a studio mixer but for hifi?
I don't need commends on the SQ. Just some pointers to right pre-amps.
It's for someone on this forum who didn't have the nerve to ask the question himself.
I'm not sure if this fits the bill but I am using a "pro audio" ROLLS DA134 Distribution Amplifier which takes one line level stereo input and has four volume controlled line level stereo outputs. The inverse of this is a ROLLS MiniMix Pro MX122 which mixes four inputs to one output. I've also used a ROLLS Stereophile Headphone Amplifier HA243, which takes two line inputs with four A/B switchable headphone outputs, to drive headphones and powered monitors. These items are in the $100-$130 range (USD).

So, we buy stuff because we have no friends. That's really sad.
No, it’s more of a culturally taught, self-generated endorphin-opioid response, though one highly socially acceptable. IMO

The friends thing is secondary. IMO

1st world problem, really.
