I was thinking of buying these with The AKG Q701. Will it be good? Also how do I know whether to get 110 V or 220~240 V and which gain? And how does this amp hold up against DarkVoice 336SE OTL Headphone Amp?
It will be great for that headphone. US plugs are 110V while eu is 220V. As for gain I think the standard will be enough for those headphones. Lastly the Darkvoice is a completely different kind of amp ( being a tube amp), and for a firts amp I don't think they can be recommended. Start with a solid state, and if you get bored of it after a few years (if ever) then consider a tube amp.
Thanks for the response! Would you also happen to know if I would need the "ODAC (OBJECTIVEDAC)" for this amp to work?
No problem. No, you don't NEED the DAC for the amp to work, but it is recommended to achieve a clearer sound, as it eliminates a lot of noise. But actually I heard a lot of people don't use DACs because they are satisfied with the sound as it is coming from the source. So basically it depends on your source, if it is a computer then i recommend using a DAC because of the high ammount of EMI. For other audio sources you may not need it, in this case get the amp and then decide if it is good enough for you.
Thanks a lot. You're a great help to the mass drop community.
