There is but one answer: The MG Head OTL.

After three Head-Fi meets, multiple tube rolling sessions, and countless A/B tests... this amp still proves to be a monster of performance for the money. It has set a standard that has yet to be equalled for high impedance headphones.

Sennheiser owners never had it so good. Ye shall be pleased.

DT is the earlier model. OTL is the newer one.

For only $$$? You mean the price? Headroom has it for $329.

Best synergy? You mean with the HD-600? Yes, the MG Head OTL has ideal synergy with HD-600's. It is the best affordable tube amp for them.

D'OH! I haven't heard the Moretto/Radii yet.

That's one of the last remaining faceoffs to do... Moretto/Radii vs. MG Head OTL.
