Schiit Valhalla, tremendous amp despite being OTL (or because of it).

I got an E11 in my future and the MK2 of my current MP-301
the MP-301 MK2--check the price, nice right, I'll vouch for the sound without even hearing it, the current model is excellent..

I currently use my AvaStar pre but I have to say the MP-301 MK2 looks interesting. I might have to pull the trigger on that.

If you want to think about a different idea, I really like Benchmark products. I have a USB1 that is a headphone amp, preamp and DAC into one unit. It sounds superb! I don't know what the latest model they offer is, but it's probably better with HDMI connection. Try audioadvisor.com

Yeah...don't even ask what cans I have, and I still have another 5-10 amps on shelves collecting dust...I'm sick.   :duh:

Lee-Thanks its a daily friggin mess but this audio thing we love helps, and if its any consolation, all my stuff is set up in my bedroom and I have so many JBL's laying around that before I went in the hospital and started the falling thing I would brace myself every step of the way anywhere in my room by holding on to the nearest JBL. My closet for my clothes is 20% clothes and 80% JBL's....LOL....but we have fun and thats what counts!!!!
 Thanks again Lee for the kind thoughts...!!!!!

It's nice to see some SinglePower love here  :D
My PPX3 Slam can still hold its own against my Woo WA6SE for certain types of music.
I've got a IBasso D10 for work as well, plus a Total Bithead that spends all its time in the drawer these days.

Since I started on this headphone thing NO SS yet other than listening to a movie late at night and using an AV receiver..actually I have that little Fiio E5 which technically qualifies now that I think of it although its small..real small..like puny!!

I do have a feeling from the level of enjoyment I'm having modding Grado's and listening to my new IE Woodees that I'll try whatever in the pursuit of THE SOUND!!!  LOL..I try and walk a little 6 block trek everyday weather permitting to get used to the cane or walker and strengthen whatever went south on me in my legs and my ipod/Fiio/Woodees rig is essential...got to have rythym!!!! :dance:

A buddy just sent me an old NAD 3020B integrated amp with a broken faceplate which I just plugged in about ten minutes ago and that has a really good headphone stage on it.

For those of you with multiple amps, it would be nice to know if you have a favorite or tend to listen to some more than others, strengths, weakness, etc.. 

Much appreciated...

This will make things more interesting. A nice idea  :thumb:
you can also add...which songs you like the most when using it? headphones?

My situation is easy-sorta....I use the Fiio E5 when ever I leave home, and the MP301 pretty much exclusively at home when using my Grado's. i also love my little IEM collection with the Sleek Audio SA-1's leading the pack and use them with the E5 only at this point.

Hi fwd and all Audio Circle members.
What make/model of hearphones your Schiit Valhalla is driving?

I now own a pair of Sennheiser HD570 (60 Ohms),
but later I want to up grade to Beyer Dynamic DT-990PRO or HiFi Man using the Schiit Valhalla or Decware OTL CSP2+.
