Would you say a £700 Headphone Amp is overkill for the ProJect Debut Carbon?
My main system is just a Meridian M80 and SqueezeBox Touch which I'm more than happy with, recently bought my first ever TT but i get the odd crackling and interference problem which drives me nuts, I've tried everything, bought a Atacama rack, elevated the TT up high, the only thing i haven't done is position the TT across the other side of the room away from my M80, I'm sure i noticed an improvement when distancing the TT as far from my M80 as it would go but I've decided to have my TT in a different room, preferably in a headphone set-up. There is not a fault with any of my LP's or the Turntable because I'm using an old ProJect headphone amp as a stop gap and it sounds good with no distortion.
Im considering a Graham Slee Novo, Lehmann Rhinelander, or the Black Cube Linear, i have owned a BCL some years ago and it sounded like heaven when switching the gain to 0 with Grado's, so that is what my heart want's. Could do without coughing up £650 though.
Anyway advice would be greatly appreciated.
