Headphone amp for Audeze LCD-2 'phones

This is my first venture in headphone listening. I purchased a pair of Audeze headphones and want to find a headphone amp to match well with the somewhat difficult to drive Audeze's. I am considering a Decware Taboo (Steve Deckert says this would be a great match with planar magnetic 'phones on his site). Leaning towards the taboo because I would prefer a headphone amp that doubles as an amp for my speakers (with volume pot). Also considering Burson.

My budget is around $1,300.

Any suggestions?

Get thee over to all the various headphone sites like:

There are many others but the 6moons review just might help to narrow down your choices. Read up as much as you can before diving in.

All the best,
If you can stretch, the Eddie Current Super 7 is a stellar amp with the LCD-2. Very highly recommended.

Woo Audio makes a very good, reliable line of amps. The Woo 22 is very good if you have a balanced source, although not at the level of the Super 7, but they sometimes come up for sale close to your budget.

The Decware is probably a good choice, although not as well-known as Eddie Current or Woo.

I would avoid solid state. I used to own the Luxman P-1u, a $3000 solid state amp that many consider to be the pinnacle of solid state amps, and would take the Super 7 or Woo 22 over the Luxman any day of the week.
Thank you all for exposing me to what appear to be great amps. I have a lot of research to do. I'm hearing that the Audeze is FABULOUS with Red Wine headamps.
