Schiit Lyr or Qinpu A-6000mkll dilemma

    Hey guys 
    I been interested in upgrading my amp from a solid state to tube amp. I am currently running an e7+e9 combo with a pair of shure 1440. I been doing research and finally listed came down to two final items, the schiit lyr and qinpu a-6000mkll. Does anyone have any suggestions, something that would suit the 1440? i know the lyr is a hybrid and the qinpu isn't? anyone have any experience with the qinpu on six moons they did a review on it, seems pretty damn good for the pricing.

    For those headphones, I wouldn't recommend either amp.  If you want the Schiit line, consider the Asgard 2.

    You mean a tube amp won't match up with the shure 1440?

    The Lyr is overkill for those headphones, and the Qinpu is a speaker amp that had the ability to drive headphones, which is also overkill.

    but by overkill you mean it won't sound as good? because i am planning to use these amps for other headphones in the future which would require more power to drive.

    By overkill, I mean the Shure headphones are easy to drive and are not as influenced by amps as much as other headphones.  But, if you want to get more power hungry headphones in the future, then that's another story.
