good afternoon all!
I THINK i have narrowed it down to the Audeze LCD 3 phones.

OK, one store recommended the Woo audio WA 7 firefly.

i also see Woo makes the WA 6-SE.

the phones have 110 ohm impedance.

I already have the Schiit Yggdrasil DAC, which I really like.

so I believe I do NOT need the headphone amp to have a DAC/

I also heard the LCD 3's with the Schiit LYR, sounded great.

I think it might be fun, for me to learn about tubes, and do some tube rolling

dumb questions for today:
1. which Woo amp might I get for the LCD phones?
2. which Schiit amp?
3. other amp that you guys love?

i welcome any and all ideas!

thanks!

have a great day!

No need for an amp with a dac...you already own a great one.

Many amps will work, it will all depend on what you budget is and if you want SS or tubes.

I like Mjolnir2 with my LCD-3f, balanced, and tube roll to taste.

I vote against the WA7. I had it and the LCD3 and it wasn't the best match.
