Desktop Amps Recommendations

Hi all,

Can i get some recommendations on the desktop amps for headphones you will buy if there are these few models in your shortlist

Violectric G111
Topping A90



On the side note, tube amps also looks interesting- like the woo audio Wa6 vs Xduoo TA-20/30 series


As the china manufacturers are getting more established, what are your thoughts about these amps above i have mentioned.

Thanks in advance for your advice. Quite new to desktop amps and will like to learn more

with that budget, you may want to consider the Headamp Gilmore Lite 2 as well.

U might wanna try out ifi zen dac? Tiagong it is cheap and good. And it uses burr brown chip.
If u have the budget and enough desktop space, u might wanna consider china brand Audio-gd.
