Not the Sprout. It has terrible measurements and low frequency roll off.

NAD D3020 is better than the Sprout, although it lacks phono input. (Clarification: the D3020 is generally considered a better unit than the Sprout, and the Sprout measured poorly in a Stereophile review, but I don't know how they compare specifically for their headphone amps. The D3020 doesn't seem to get a lot of love for its headphone output, so if that's your primary purpose, you're probably better off with something else.)

I have the sprout - is it really that bad? It's the only amp I've owned so I don't have anything to benchmark against other than my phone. I've been using a set of DT-770's for the past 7 years and am currently auditioning a set of B&W P7W's. I just got in on this 6XX drop so this will be my first set of open backs ever. What setup would you recommend being a noticeable step up from the sprout for the 6XX's?

I don't know how bad the Sprout is, but you can check out the measurements on Stereophile. They're not ideal, but I'm not sure how audible those deviations from neutral are. I'm not the best person to ask, but my HD600 sounds great with my Oppo HA-1. That amp has plenty of power, produces really tight and powerful bass, and a liquid, class A tone. I've also owned a Benchmark DAC1, which sounded great too.

Anyone using this beauty? It seems like the most feature-packed dac under $200. MQA support, 3.5mm and 4.4mm balanced headphone out, the unique balanced RCA ports- all under $200. My purpose would be to power up my IEMs.

What DAC and amp should I get for the Beyerdynamic DT 770 250 amp headphones? Should I buy a DAC/amp or a stack?
My budget is 300 dollars. I'm going to use it for video games and house music production.

Looking for a solid state headphone amp with 2 or more RCA inputs and an RCA output.
Does anyone know of a solid state headphone amp with 2 RCA inputs and a passthrough RCA output? The Xduoo TA-20 is nearly what I want, but I was looking for something solid state. No DAC needed.

CANS for METAL?
Cans for METAL? I have some Grado sr60e’s and AT ATH-AD700 but looking to upgrade. I’m not an audiophile (yet) but both of these I find “shimmery” and sometimes a bit harsh esp the Grados and a bit IDK empty? sounding. I mostly listen to metal/thrash but these will be probably my go-to’s in general. I’ve read a lot (probably too much..planar,dynamic, HE vs HD, etc) but just don’t know. I will drive with an amp (also would take a recommendation) and budget $300 or less for the headphones. Many thanks in advance.

Panda Firmware Update 3/5
Hello Friends, Work continues on our sonarworks integration. We're nearing the end of that process and I can provide some context for this update. The update we're working on now is focused on two areas Sonarworks Integration Update Infrastructure We've talked about the benefits of Sonarworks (EQ, SoundID, etc) so let's focus on Update Infrastructure. Update Infrastructure is about what we can update and how we can deliver those updates. For this first update, some of you will need to update via USB C (installers will be provided for OSX/Win), but most of you, and all of you for all future updates, will be able to update over the air via the Sonarworks app. Beyond updating over the air, this update includes a variety of back-end changes that will address some QOL issues and enable further firmware development. Thanks for your patience, we'll be back next week with hopefully our last update before release.
