Hey music lovers!
I have been using the Verite Open (Silkwood) with the Questyle CMA 400i for the past 6 months. Everything was fine until two months.. everything sounded plain and I had a feeling that this is not how the VO should sound. I took the jump 2 weeks ago by upgrading to the CMA Twelve Master, and I never knew that an amp could make such a huge difference. It was like listening to a completely different headphone... the mids, the bass, soundstage, imaging.. it's surreal!
I have been thinking of getting my very first tube amp for some time now... and I kept on reading how Feliks tube amps pairs really well with ZMF headphones. I have narrowed it down to 3 amps (Auris HA2 SE, Feliks Elise, Feliks Euforia). Even though I can't demo these units.. I feel that the Elise will suit the sound I'm going for at this moment in time.. which is smooth, warm, tubey sound (really curious about what this sound like).
Which one do guys think will pair well with the Verite Open?
The only other headphones I see myself getting in the near future are the Aeolus, Verite Closed, and Auteur.
If you go for the Elise or Euforia the "Chatham 6AS7G" tubes are great IMHO. They are very clean sounding and fast and pair perfectly with the slight warmth of the Feliks amps.
