In the market for a headphone amp to pair with my Takstar Pro 82s, KPH30I Clears, and will soon get the Beyerdynamic DT880 Premium 600 ohms. Recently sold my IFI Zen Dac as I was wanting something with an RCA input, plus I was just wanting to try something new.
Nothing professional, I just play games, watch movies, and listen to music all day (mostly rock and metal). I like to own just one amp at a time, so this will be used for everything I do at my desk. Regardless of the price differences, I’m torn between the following amps…
- Rebel Amp
- JDS Labs EL Amp II
- XDUOO TA-10R
To be completely honest I just like the way these 3 amps look compared to everything else out there under $500 lol, plus they all seem to be highly praised.
I also don’t have a DAC at the moment. I’ll probably end up getting the SMSL M100 just because I don’t want to spend much on a DAC. Until I get one I’d just be feeding one of these amps straight from the aux out of my computer monitor.
