I use the popular Schiit stack (modi DAC + magni amp) with my desktop Linux PC. For my main audio rig (all analog) I use the xDuoo TA-20 amp with various NOS tubes (Brimar, RCA clear top, Sylvania), downstream from the phono section in an Audible Illusions M3B and a 2nd gen Rega planar 3. I use the stock HD-6xx cables with the PC, and Sennheiser 4-pin XLR balanced cables when I play records.

I hate to be that guy but It depends on what your using the H6XX for and what you want out of the HD6XX. I don't think their is a "best" overall the "best" for you maybe the worst for me. Right now what I have paired to my 6xx is a o2/grace combo with thx 789 amp. I like this pairing it's very intimate, dynamic, and fast. The 6xx has a mid range focus with warmth from the mids to the highs. The vocals are warm with body sacrificing accurate representation of vocals for more easy musical representation. I want to pair denafrips ares ii with balanced tube preamp into my 789. I want a warmer and softer sound with more impact on bass and midrange.

Chose either from the list below: A) any B) all. By the way, young Grasshopper, here is no such thing as best.

I just have the Topping D90/A90 stack so it better pair up well with that. I just seriously bought these by accident, anymore expensive and I would be scrambling to cancel the order! :S March something?!?! January is just getting warmed up!! WOW! That is seriously a long wait.

Audiosciencereview.com takes the snake oil out of the equation. After careful research, i decided on the jds atom dac and amp. The thx aaa 789 did well too i believe.

Audio science review is for idiots who don't know how to listen for themselves.

Please don’t listen to people saying these don’t need an amp. That’s ok as a short-term stopgap if you can’t afford one right away, but these need power. Consider something like an iFi nano as a bare minimum. Mojo sounds pretty decent with them as another portable option but is a little analytical. Lots of good recommendations here, but plugging directly into your phone or laptop is not one of them.

i use sybasonic, its enough to get the 6xx to get ear piercing loudness. i also have arc mk1, just sent it for firmware upgradation.
