    Hi Henry

    Are your phones high or low impedance jobbies as this will affect choices and suitability of head amps for your phones.

    Very subjective these things. Some people will say a certain unit is not great, another will say the opposite. Also tricky judging one unit with a certain headphone.

    I use S.M.S.L 'SAP-9' with AKG 'K141 Mk.2 & Citronic 'CE-22'

    Check out the Askewlabs website. A British one man band who builds everything himself, he does mains or rechargeable battery options, had one of his early battery operated ones when I went through a short lived headphone phase, couldn’t fault it. Think he gives a lifetime warranty on them if memory serves.

    I totally agree with Andy about the Myryad Z40. A cracking remote controllable headphone anp that has pre-out, so can be used as a pre-amp. The sound is rather nice as well. Definitely worth hunting one out.
