Don't know how small of a space you're talking, but I'm assuming the Schiit stuff is a no-go. However, I'd definitely recommend Vidar or Rag 2. Do you need an integrated amp? It would kind of help save space, but most integrated amps I've seen are quite huge. Separate power amp and preamp/passive attenuator can be smaller but obviously you have more boxes and wires to contend with.

To answer all of that in one go, I'm looking for something similar to the NAD D 3020V2 but I want to get something with a little more power. I know that's asking alot out of such a small package, but size can go up from that NAD, i just don't want an enormous box sitting on my desk. Thanks for the reply by the way.

There are not a lot of integrated amps in that form factor. The NAD 3045 has more wattage with similar size (2 inches added to height/depth). The PS Audio sprout 100 will also be of similar size with more power than the 3020. Beyond that you are looking at bigger options or far more expensive options.

^this exactly. I don't know of imtegrated amps that I liked in that form factor. Most of the stuff I have/liked is honking huge. Including my headphone amps. The closest thing to what you're looking for that I'd recommend is seriously a Vidar with a Sys for volume control. Or if you really want one box, a Schiit Rag 1.

HD6XX + Focusrite Scarlett + Creative X3 combination?
I have recently purchased HD6XX and I have a Scarlett Solo audio interface and Creative X3 DAC. Primarily I’m listening to classical music and film scores. I’m using Scarlett Solo audio interface to record classical music (with acoustic guitar, digital piano and signature frequency energy chimes, singing bowls and tuning forks). Ideally, of course, I understand that HD6XX require something like a quality tube amplifier. As I was experimenting with settings I put Scarlett Solo in a chain with X3 both set on 192kHz/24bit/1024 and when I started listening I realized the sound is completely different than when I used each separately. I have no experience in the field and these are my first top level headphones. I just have very good ears and performance experience in acoustic guitar and piano. I’ve heard tube amplified and vinyl analog signals before and what I heard processed through the chain sounded very close to tube signal. Deep and warm sound. Not just clear sound but all bands...

Just bought a Drop + THX 789 what's next?
I'm on a 500-600 budget and really want to upgrade. Right now I'm running an SHP-9500/Steelseries Pro Wireless. I just purchased the THX 789 and I'm looking to purchase a Dac+Headphone combo that would work well with the 789. Any recommendations in the 500-600 range? Thanks

Preamp for volume control of left, right channels?
Does anyone know of a preamp-like device that can adjust the level of the left and right channels with either a pan/balance control or separate left/right volume controls? I want to be able to turn down the right channel a few DB to compensate for partial hearing loss. I'd love something with the footprint and pricing of the various JDS Labs, Mayflower and/or Schitt boxes but haven't seen anything on the market that can do pan/balance other than high-end headphone amps. Thanks!

Drop x Panda buzzing noise
This buzzing noise started to happen like a month ago. It was just static noise after being paired to the phone, then it getting louder and louder now, whenever I try to connect it on Bluetooth, it goes crazy buzzing sounds, for like five minutes and non-stop both earpieces. It also can't be controlled with a sound bar or anything, just goes loud so that I can't wear it at all. But, weirdly it stops when I connect it to my laptop using the bundle 3.5mm cable. What do you think of this problem? I'm gonna contact the customer support team, but this is so uncomfortable to use it. Sometimes it goes like 10 minutes. Did anyone have the same issue as mine?

Can someone from customer support please reach out.
I purchased an R5 Saber edition, and the unit lasted about a week before it died on me. Someone named Haley said it would take a few days for her to reach out to someone to see if there are any troubleshooting tips. That was on Sept 18th, and I still have not gotten a response back. I sent another email asking for a refund because this is stressing me out that after spending $400 dollars no one from customer support is responding.

I would love a custom Koss build for sale. PortaPro X headband, KSC75x drivers and black Yaxi earpads.
I know I can make this myself, but I would happily order a pair. Throw in MMCX connectors on the drivers, and who could say no to such an awesome creation?
