I'm trying to pick an amp to use with my DT880 and DialogueII DAC. I was going to get something solid state, but I am tempted to try tubes or hybrid. I don't want to spend much over $500, if I can avoid it, which makes the Woo3 a logical choice. Other options are the Headroom Millet Hybrid, or perhaps the new Mapletree amp, or the PPX3, but those are all more than I want to spend. Just looking at the specs, it seems like if I don't need/want the extra features that the Headroom Millet offers, the Woo3 might be a better sounding amp, but I'm not sure if that's actually the case, and the features the Headroom offers are tempting. Also, would any of these amps work well with Grados, or even IEMs? Any other possibilities to consider?
