Monoprice currently has the Monolith Liquid Spark and Liquid Platinum headphone amps on sale.

Liquid Spark [monoprice.com] (use code: LIQUID20)


Liquid Platinum [monoprice.com] (use code: LIQUID50)

Both headphone amps are highly reviewed at their price points. I've owned a Liquid Spark, and I think it compares closely to the other top ~$100 amps. For my money, I prefer the Magni 3 Heresy, but the Liquid Spark may be a better choice at $20 cheaper before tax and shipping. I find the Spark to be smoother and warmer than the Magnis, though the #s say it's a smidge less clean than the Magnis. If you're unsure/undecided, I don't think you can go wrong with either choice.

I've been looking into getting an amp dac for gaming. I'm currently using hyper x cloud headphones with sound blaster z. Would anyone recommend going from sound blaster z to this? I would also get new headphones. Thanks.

My opinion is put your money into headphones first. That will have the largest impact on sound. The Z has a capable headphone amp, but if it can't power your new headphones you can look for an amp that matches the headphones well.

Are these good with 80ohms or 250ohms headphones like Beyerdynamic DT770 pro or any other audiophile headphones?

many headphone amps are one way, meaning that your voice will not go from your mic, through the amp, to the computer. So unless you directly connect your mic to the computer, make sure that any amp you want does allow your mic to go back through to the computer.

How does the Spark compare to the $30-50 models that have very good DAC and 80w RMS per channel?

You may think I'm Fulla Schitt, but I'd take that over the Liquid Spark anyday.
what are the reasons for taking Schitt over spark?

I have a turntable running through a Spark that's also feeding a Monoprice Unity 100w amp. I've been very happy with the setup.

At $80 shipped I feel like it's a no brainier.

Throw the tube amp in the garbage. The other one measures pretty well with some flaws. Not too powerful but decent. It'll work as well as anything for most people but if you have $2000 headphones than it won't cut it.

Same. This and the JDS atom measure comparably, the atom is probably slightly better but not sure if it's $20 better. For $80 and FS this is a no brainer if you didn't already own an amp.

There are none. Go to audio science review. This and the JDS atom are probably some of the best sub $100 amps.

I chose the spark over the atom about a year ago because the spark can do 1.3w @50ohms. If you have some semi hungry headphones, the spark wins with more power output. If not, you're still covered down the road.

20% discount is not a big deal in amplifiers.

Liquid spark for $80 is pretty much a no-brainer. It drives my 300 ohm Massdrop 6xx (similar to Sennheiser HD650). Reviews have mentioned that spark sounds a bit warmer compared to JDS labs Atom. I haven't heard the Atom, but I think it might be true. I did compare it to Fiio K3 usb-powered fax/amp and spark drove my HD6xx much better. If you connect Liquid Spark to a decent deck it will sound phenomenal.
