you really don't need thousands of dollars of amp to really drive this cans well.

when i heard of schiit , i was skeptical at first.
but they really made some good stuffs at a affordable range.

valhalla2 is a good tube amp for this cans.
very pleased with my bifrost uber usb and valhalla2 powering the hd800.
try some schiit. again, ymmv.
Ya there will be some value for money amps. Borrow from car talks... "Power without control" is just half done. Going loud is one thing, finesse is another.

The CNY break is long and after 2 days, I was tempted and bought the iDSD Micro to use its DAC feature and pair it with my new amplifier coming next week. Still charging the iDSD Micro as I was told it needed 24 hours charging for maximum performance (according to the staff as well as from the iDSD manual).

Also your hd800 will scale very well with good DAC or expose the flaws of a bad dac.
