Headphones I own
- Koss PortaPro
- AKG K-712 Pro
- AudioTechnica ATH-AD500x
- AudioTechnica M50x
- Fostex T50RP MkIII
- Panasonic RP-HD10
I have been using my ART HeadAmp4 and BasX A-100 and am now looking to replace the former as its high output impedance is hindering some of my headphones from performing their best.
The BasX is a lovely beast which works well with my T50RP’s and K-712’s, shows its Class A noise on the other headphones though.
All that in mind, I went looking for solid-state options in the 200 to 300€ range (I am in Germany, so Drop is not realy an option due to import tax).
Two that stuck out are the Aune X7s and LakePeople G103-S.
Leaves me with two questions:
Are there any other amps I overlooked?
Which of the two?
I am currently leaning towards the G103 for the reason of it not having an external power brick.
Forgot to mention: Source is a Scarlett 2i4 2nd Gen, Maya 44eX and various other devices mixed together via my Mackie Mix12.
Use will be every day computer work, music from all genres, gaming and a movie every now and then.
