Hi folks. I'm new here, having recently discovered the benefits of headphones. I've been involved with audio for +30 years, and it's never too late to learn something new. My system is fronted by analog front ends, along with an Oppo105 going into Krell/Dunlavy, which brings me here. You see, I recently purchased a LDIII and found it inadequate. It's simply a level (at least) below the 105's headphone amp in sound quality. I'm driving DT990pros and expecting 880/600 tomorrow. If the 105 can drive the 880s I'm all set. The LDIII will move to my office and happiness and joy will cover the land. If the 105 won't drive the 880s, I'll need a better amplifier. Given the expectation of serious (for a lack of a better word) performance, what should I be looking at? SS or tube is fine, though I'd prefer ss. A sense of crystalline clarity is number one on the list of wants.
