Affordable headphone amp (...or dac combo).
« on: July 12, 2018, 09:50:19 AM »
Hey all,

I am hunting a headphone amp for around R1500 give or take. It must be able to drive the high impedance HD6xx or current hungry akg k7xx.

I blew my budget on headphones, so here we are. xD

Please feel free to also mention recommendations in this price range...

 I am very new to this, and this forum and some members like Scubadude and Thomas has been a great help.
I now own HD598's HD650's... Which automatically qualifies everything I have to say audio-wise. :D

Howzit,

I have a millet minimax hybrid valve headphone amp that i am not using.

I bought it for R1600 so willing to let it go for R1500.

If only there were some easy method of communicating directly with another forum member without posting half a dozen times in their sales thread..  :thinking:

sorry for the off topic on the sale thread BUT to be honest i think its fine communicating in the thread because then the sale is transparent and open ie everyone knows whats going on so there cant be any argument later on about "i said this" or "you said that"  OR  "i offered this" and "you didnt want that"

i think the PM thing is all balls and open to manipulation by seller and buyer ..... so to me its way better if everything related to a particular thread is handled in the thread itself .... and bugger PM and whatsapp (whatsapp is the biggest load of donkeys balls ever devised IMHO)

Thanks Adrian... For some reason AVForum did not send me a notification on your replies...

I ended up buying  an ADL GT40 this evening, so I no longer need an amp or dac... For now.

Thanks to all those who showed interest.

I've been blasting Enya all night long... Pure bliss.
