    I'm buying HD600 phones. I just don't have any experience with professional headphone amps, so I'm going to need your help once again! What do you recommend?

    I like the Benchmark DAC1. It has a very good DA and very good headphone amp.

    Grace Design, baby! Their headphone amps ROCK! I have the now-discontinued M901, and their new M902 is loaded with features that make it a "miniature monitor controller" for your entire monitor rig. Seriously, I have never found a pair of 'phones that my 901 couldn' drive CLEAN and LOUD. Grado, Sennheiser, AKG, Sony, they all sound extra-sweet driven by that puppy! You might get lucky and find an M901 on E-bay that somebody is selling to get an M902!

    Thank you all!

    Musical Fidelity x-can v3 seems like a good choice for me. And it's not too expensive.

    Grace Design m902 seems very good too, but it's a lot of money just for headphone amplification.

    Have to think about this for a while... I'll see if I can find some dealers in Finland so I could check them out. Thanks!
