Recommend AMP / DAC for the HD 6XX

Does anyone have a suggested AMP / DAC for the Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 6XX?

Thanks everyone for the suggestions, after review I ended up getting the Schiit Modi 2 and Vali 2!

Would these be better than my HD598's?

I have a schiit Hel, it’s really good when I’m gaming, when I want to just play games without a mic and listening to music, I use a Schiit magni +3 with Schiit Modi, I find it gives great sound esp for the price point. I think either are great, with Magni/modi better sound experience I think but can’t go wrong with Hel for gaming or streaming also

If you’d want to get a mod mic wireless then I’d go the magni/modi stack. If you want a mic, either go the Hel with a wired mod mic. With the Hel, it can drive the 6xx no problem and you have the freedom of adding the mic. If you want, you could also get a blue yeti and go with the Schiit magni/modi for better sound IMO.

ANY amp/Dac would be good for the footsteps etc....depends on how you EQ the sound in software also.

iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2014) ===> Optical 3.5mm to SPIDIF ===> Prozor DAC ===> RCA to XLR Balanced input ===> Loxjie p20 ====> Balanced out ===> HD 6XX I start with optical to completely eliminate noise/hiss, and using the balanced input/output on P20 the sound is just amazing.

I have that. It's pretty good and the bass boost option is nice

I already bought it but thanks XD I'm using it as a desktop amp. yeah the amp does a good job powering it. my only problem is that it doesn't have enough space between high volume and low volume but it is not actually a problem so...

I am undersided between the THX AAA ONE Linear currently at $199 or the AAA™ 789 Linear Amplifier for $250 this is a black friday week. The ONE linear has a bit more single ended power 275 mW at 300 Ohms and the 789 200 mW 300 ohms. I don't own a Balanced cable for the HD6xx and from what I understand "true" balanced is not really popular anyway. Topping L30 280 mW, 300 ohms lower price.

The "Monolith Liquid Spark" is a great amp for $100.00. One of the best sounding cheap amps I've heard. My favourite amp that I have is the "S.M.S.L. SP200 THX" amp.

The HD6XX matches up really well with OTL headphone amp's. I think the Eufonika line of OTL headphone amplifiers will be a great match. My Eufonika H4 sounds great with my HD6XX and HD 600.
