    Just building a new digital media system comprising of :
    Mac mini
    Project dac box ds
    Driving AKG K550 and Senheiser HD570 and HD600.
    Sony 32"w701
    Now I'm looking for a good headphone amplifier to drive these headphones, I have been looking at the Creek obh-1 and Graham Slee Novo but I'm open to suggestions.
    I listen to a broad range of music from Jazz, r&b and pop.

    Those are fine amps, but it's hard to know without the gear here if they have enough power for the higher impedance headphones. Listening and seeing where the volume control sits (hopefully not at maximum) is the only way to be sure.

    Does anybody have any experiance with the Fidelity Audio hpa-100 as this around my price point and has really good reviews.

    I feel that any main-powered desktop amp should have enough juice for 600 ohm headphones - the HD600 is 300 ohms, for example. I have no experience of the HPA-100 you mention however.
