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!

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 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.

DAC: Schiit Bifrost Amp: EarMax (original not the pro with Mullard 12AT7; Telefunken 6GM8's); Schiit Vali 2 (with Heintz and Kaufmann 5670 tube): the EarMax is more fluid sounding, bass isn't great but midrange is sublime; Vali 2 has better bass (and is more versatile; I'm getting good results with HifiMan HE400 with Dekoni angled fenestrated sheepskin pads and Dekoni Nuggets on the headband).
