100+ Head-Fier
Feb 9, 2014
Hello team!

Looking for a new amp and I am undecided.
Here is what I have in mind:

Monolith by Monoprice Liquid Gold Balanced Headphone Amplifier and DAC by Alex Cavalli

Benchmark HPA4

???? <- Your recommendation.

I own several HP but my main go to HP's are: Ether Flow 1.1, Edition X, LCD3.

I really like my music to pack a punch so you can say I like bass with my music :)
This is one of the reason why I like the iFi iCan SE but I am ready to move on.

My DAC is a Bifrost 2 and prefer to use XLR as the interconnect with XLR output for my HP.

Thoughts? :)

Somebody pointed out in another forum that is basically the same as the Drop THX 789... I am researching.
If you're looking for more power than you'll ever need and near-perfect linear, colour-free power - the 789 is a great choice. And, you'll have a bunch of spare cash up your sleeve...
