Hmmm... Buy this now, and be bankrupt for the next little bit, or save up for a Schiit Stack I can buy whenever... Choices. What do you guys recommend?

I'm planning on running some variation of the HD600 (650, 6XX, whatever). I'm not sure if what those require would be considered a large power requirement. I'm new to this game, and after getting that pair (my home pair) sorted out I don't plan on ever returning to it, so I'm trying to get in a decent bang-for-your-buck range.

given that you are looking at the senn's you might be better off with the SMSL, however if you plan on upgrading in the future the schiit may be a better choice with their better warranty (up to 5 years). Another thing to consider is the resale if you plan to upgrade your gear. And coming back to the first point the schiit stack can do 130mw into 600ohms (assuming you mean the modi/magni) which means if you do ever get higher impedance headphones you should be able to power them quite well. Hopefully this helps

There's also the fact that I can buy the modi/magni pretty much whenever, so I can save up for it, wheras with this I'd have to figure out where that's coming from in two days, so I think I'll end up going for the schiit stack. Thanks for your help!

I do agree with you, however it's worth noting that a 6-10db (depending on who you ask) increase is twice as loud so 125db coming out of a HD600 would be 1.75-2x as loud as 115db. On the digizoid online headphone calc, very loud is considered 115db which is about as loud as a leaf blower while 120db is equivalent to a plane taking of on an airport runway.

and... if he decided to get a harder to drive headphone the schiit stack would suit him better

Did you have chance to compare M6 vs Schiit stack? Or otherwise what is the basis for your opinion?

look at the previous 'posts'. I stated all my reasons there. Neither are a bad option. In short, the schiit is more powerful which may or may not be important to you based on your gear, and the schiit has a better warranty, and resale value may also be a contributing factor.

Ye, I saw some warmer Fulla and cold SMSL M6 comparison. Which makes me think that Fulla "colors" the sound, and SMSL M6 probably has inadequate power supply. Hard to tell without trying :) Awaiting my unit now...
