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.

I've been using them with the Mayflower Electronics 02 amp and 02 DAC and they sound incredible to me. I don't really have any other equipment to compare it to unfortunately. I'd like to see what differences I'd experience with other Amp/DAC combos.

Hi there. Not sure but iFi have a new amp and dac on sale on here - the ZEN DAC & ZEN CAN Signatures. The ZEN CAN Sig. has an EQ 'button' to switch on a curve that is tailored to alleviate the 6xx's weak spots, it says.

I am surprised nobody has mentioned the Bottlehead Crack with the Speedball upgrade. I own this tube amp and use the Schitt Modi Multibit DAC to connect to my iPad. I got them specifically to pair with the HD 650/6XX headphones. It's a DIY Amp, but you can buy them professionally assembled and customized. The added benefit is that there are so many ways to upgrade this kit with tubes, capacitors and even power cables that you can have fun listening to your favorite music in ways you never imagined possible.
