Moved to a new apartment; I don’t know about you all, but one of my favorite (or most time-consuming and aggravating) parts of the process is setting up the new music area.

Now that my work desk is in a separate room, I guess that means I need a second headphone amp, right?

Right.

My experience has been that even if I have 5 or 6 headphone amps, I need another one. And another one.

In bike world there's a math formula that I believe is also aplicable to headphones:
The right number of bikes to own = n+1

(n= bikes already owned)

For certain deranged individuals who shall remain nameless (we know who we are) -- the formula for amps to own = n +

(n = amps already owned)

PS: the formula for headphones to own is the same, sadly

If you have 1 headphone/amp, most (sane) people are happy with 1.

If you have 3, you want 9, and so on...

Reminds me of my recent post about having a dozen headphones on a 3 shelf unit with a new pair coming in. Asked the question which one should go to make room for the new one. Lots of rational, logical, & sensible answers describing which pair and why it should go. Then my spirit brother shows up and states unequivocally "get a bigger shelf".

look at drop.com's 6XX, most owners of that headphone say it's their end game and it's amazing.. meanwhile my 2010 era HD650 is my beater headphone for work calls, and I'm planning on 3 more headphones and another amp to get in the future alongside my current 3 or 4 headphones...

I don't necessarily ascribe to that philosophy, per se, but I did buy me a new bike this summer. I think I found the last available bike in all of the northeastern US!!!!

I gave you a like not only because this is an excellent point--but also because "adeadcrab" is an amazing screen-name.
