I've ordered these headphones, and I know that probably my current setup won't be able to drive them to the fullest.
With that in mind, what is a good, *cheap-ish* desktop headphone amp solution? I am *not* looking for something with a DAC included.
I already have a good DAC solution, but it's not really rated to provide a power output to cover the 300 Ohms of the 6XX's. I also only plan on using these at a desktop, so I don't need a portable solution like the FiiO's so many people recommend.
I'm just looking for a simple signal boost at a good quality. I've heard of the Schiit Magni, but having paid for the 6XX's adding another $99 is a bit much for me and a cheaper option would be nice.
So what would you recommend? Remember, I'm not looking for anything fancy, I want to keep the price low as possible while still maintaining a quality to match that of the 6XX's.
$99 is pretty cheap for a half-decent headphone amp. Hard to find much that will beat the Magni for value. I'd either look for a used one, or keep an eye on Schiit's B-Stock listings (I think they sell for $80 when they're there).
