Hey guys,

It's pretty easy to get a decent sense of what sorts of headphones are really popular, but I'm curious as to which amps (tubes/hybrids for now) have the most followers here on Head-Fi. As a result, I'm posting this poll and another for amps in the $500-1000 range [http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f4/what-se-tube-hybrid-amps-do-you-own-500-1000-range-446349/]here[/url]. Unfortunately there are only 10 options that I can post in the poll, but feel free to post others that you might own as well.

Happy voting!

Tubes under $500:

Woo Audio 3
Little Dot MKIV, III, II, etc
Darkvoice 3322, 336
Audiotailor Jade
Ming-Da MC 84C07
Head-Direct EF1
Elekit TU-882

At least, that's what I was debating between... ended up with a WA6 though.

Besides the EF1 and Elekit TU-882 you forgot to include two classics the Musical Fidelity X-Can V2 and V3. These two amps w/ the PinkFloyd Mods and a Little Pinkie PSU sound superb and beat the heck of many other amps I have listened to. As I am typing this I am using my V3 APureSound re-cabled K501 out of a highly modded X-Can V2.

I just received the HiFiMAN EF2 today and for $200 I'm about ready to stop at that. With my HD580s I'm pretty close to where I want to be sound wise without spending more then I need to.
