    Hi, my Name is Ash and I live in Corby, UK.
    I'm really keen on on getting a solid headphones-centric set up
    Currently have a Technics SL1210 bei G pushed through a Schiit stack pictures attached

    Am contemplating getting a tube amp but not sure what yet

    Thanks for having me

    My music tastes are Jazz and Blues mostly. Also Dub... All of it so-called 'Old School'

    Welcome Ash. Which Jazz and Dub artists do you like? Dubwise I like Bill Laswell, International Observer and many others, Jazz....too many to mention, but more in the fusion/funk/ambient style.
    Buy Bose...And get your parking validated!.

    Hey!
    Dub tastes tend towards Scientist, Burning Spear
    Jazz wise... Slow sax/piano laden stuff like Ike Turner with Stanley Turrentine, Art Pepper, Paul Desmon and so on Also really new stuff.... Think Four80East are tremendously talented

    Hello Ash. Welcome to AOS.

    There are quite a few valve headphone amps about. I'd suggest asking for some opinions in the Artist's Palette section. I reckon a good few members will have used valve headphone amps.


    Enjoy the forum,
    Geoff.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!
