Headphone Amp

I'm thinking of going down the headphone and separate DAC route. Not sure on source (probably CDP or PC) yet or headphones. Can anyone recommend the best headphone amp of the ones below or any others around this price point?

Creek OBH-21SE £220

Graham Slee Novo £250

Thanks Smile

You could get the Firestone Audio Fubar IV. DAC & headphone amp in one.

Yeah, I ws thinking about the combined DAC/amp but would this really be as good as say an Arcam rDac with the Creek headphone amp?

Re: Headphone Amp

I guess that would all depend on your budget! The rDac with a Creek or a Slee would be significantly more expensive than a combined DAC/amp like the Beresford or Fubar. But then I guess you'd probably get better results for your money, as the separate components are very highly regarded. Wonder if anyone else has used the rDac with a decent headamp?

How much have you got to spend?

Re: Headphone Amp

Second thoughts. I think you are right. Is a little expensive to get separate ones when the Caiman and Fubars are available. Also need less plug sockets!
