Amp to Pair with Focal Elex
more_vert
Hello. I'm the proud owner of a Focal Elex and I'm wondering what amp pairs well with it. For reference, I currently own a Schiit Magni 3 and JDS atom, as well as a topping D10 dac. I'm looking for something that will smooth out the sound a bit, bring vocals forward somewhat, and increase the bass quantity. I'm considering the following amps: Schiit Asgard 3 Cavalli Tube Hybrid Vali 2 Valhalla 2 Liquid Carbon X Lyr 3 My budget is 300 dollars, and I'm very willing to look at used items!

What source(s) / files are you using for music? If you have not already, get some 24/192 files, or DSD, of your fav’s to try. One shop: https://store.acousticsounds.com/c/389/FLAC_Downloads

I second the others, while I certainly believe amps can impart slight "flavors" to the sound it sounds like you need an EQ or a different set of headphones.

Get yourself a Schiit Loki Tone Control (EQ) and use it with the Atom. It will be much easier to change the sound with this than buying a whole new amp.

You have some more than decent gear. Have you tried using EQ to tune up your Elex to your preferences? Most modern solid state amps are aiming to not color or add any flavor to the sound.
