I forgot to mention that I have a pair of Manley 300B Retros mated with Concident Super Eclipses -- don't think solid state preamps will jive with my system. THANKS.

.......agree with Sonic Frontiers-- either Line 1 or Line 2. I have both-- they are excellent pre-amps and the headphone section of both are great. I use them with Senn. 600s also.
BTW, the Line 1 and 2 sound an awful lot alike with the Line 2 having a bit more smoothness and naturalness, but the differences are not great. The Line 1 can be had for $1000. to $1200., and the Line 2 for $1500. to 1800. Cheers. Craig
Melos, is excellent. Best headphone amp I ever heard (or had). I now have a Rogue 99, all around a better preamp, but very inefficient with phones (have to turn the volume to 8 or 9 to get moderate sound), and the jack is inconveniently placed in the back of the unit. But it is a killer preamp otherwise.
