Headphone-amps without "sound-enhancement"-bullshittery?

All I want is a good small headphone-amplifier that fits on my desk, doesn't distort like 99% of all amps and Dacs do and has RCA-input.

Anything not too expensive you can recommend?

Nothing with "this makes the sound 'warm' or 'cold' or 'add the fart of an prehistoric elf to the high-end-spectrum"-bullshit.

I just want to give my headphones some juice. thats all dammit!

TLDR:
Audiophiles prefer to hear the fart of a fly that just licked the sweat of a Cello-player across the hall instead of listening to the whole orchestra.

Lets get this out of the way: I'm no audiophile.
I thought I was an audiophile, but I am not.
And I think the whole Audiophile-idea is prententious insanity (unless you are listening to 192kb MP3s over logitec-speakers. Then you absolutely deserve to be earslapped!)

Sure, I prefer FLAC to MP3 and ogg, but I despise .wav for its clunky and unpredictable behavior.

My old huge wooden noname-speakers broke after serving me and my dad well for many, many years and I thought I need to get something new and hopefully better.
My search lead me unsurprisingly across audiophile forums and videos.

I tried Klipsch with isolated snake-oil-cords, Eidifiers, Bose and different AudioTechnica-headphones ... and all of them created a "soundstage" that was... total crap imho. Particular sounds where muffled, some melodies that carried the music got swallowed by strings that were waaaay to much in the front, so many dominant sounds that made music just wrong. It was like someone took the painting of the Mona Lisa and glued a poster of the same picture over it - -with inverted colours.
Sure... SOME instruments were now way clearer in my ear. Mostly strings and sometimes even voices. But overall... it sounded like total crap.
Best example: When the orchestra was supposed to "explode" in Jeremy Soules Dawn of War OST, it was like a shy cimbal wanted to keep pushing forward, isntead of contributing to the whole orchestra!
Or the music from Ivan Torrent or Two Steps from hell wasn't melodic anymore, it was like a cold surgery of music. with no emotions and missing a soundcarpet. Everything that made the music great was missing.

I tried changing my DACs, letting the phones and Amps "burn in", trying different styles of music (so many EPIC orchestral Songs or Movie-scores or Videogame-soundtracks now sounded totally bland!) I was never really satisfied with the sound!
Music wasn't FUN anymore!

I sold my expensive headphones, bought a pair cheap DJ-headphones and put a HD-Audio-Soundcard in my Computer and after a littlebit of configuration (basically just activating "Crystalizer" and "Smart-Volume") and my sound now improved by 100% !
My music and movies now sound full and filled with instruments, instead of a solo-instrument-orchestra and muffled voices!

Best thing:
After I sold all my expensive speakers, DACs and headphones I bought myself new cables, a dirt-cheap used multi-room music-system and connected it with simple copper-wires and banana-plugs with my Polk Audios and Micca OoOs so I can have music every room and I still have money left.

PS: Audiophilia is a snake-oil-cult

PSS:
sorry for the rant. it was late and I was still a littlebit angry for falling for so much audio-equipment-bullshit.

>having to warm up amplifier-tubes for 10 minutes before getting the sound desired

yeah, no thanks.
I'll keep enjoying my creative X-Fi with a pair of Creative Gigaworks-speakers and its a blast!

So I was collecting a few (swedish) songs for an english-speacking friend and there doesn't seem to be all that many translations at all and they tend to be rater obscure. Anyway I figured that this must be true of a bunch of other languages. So how about a thread on it?

I have released a new ambient/drone/noise/soundscapes/experimental album, it goes by the name "Music Catalogue 2; Sequential Transition/Progressive Ambient Jazzcore".

If you want to listen to it, here is the link to the playlist which contains all of the songs.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLMjVHM4lWVzzHXqIIwyr4h02jTRiREvlR

If you want to listen to the prequel which goes by the name "Jazz Pieces; Music Catalogue 1", it's here:

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLMjVHM4lWVzwmBPOIg8hDt7WqRphD_Q5p

Furthermore I'm currently working on the third installment.

PS: don't listen to the other stuff on the channel, it's imitation and trash.

Post electronic psychedelic music. Which is mostly psytrance, but other shit is welcome too.

Because it's the future, because this is a site about drugs.

I really like master Margherita: https://mastermargherita.com/album/my-funktion

Hoopy Frood (excellent psybient rock band) is offering their albums for free for the next week on their Bandcamp (hoopyfrood.bandcamp.com). Hugely underappreciated group IMO, super fun hippie music with influences from all over, but primarily psychedelic electronic and rock.

This album is one of my perennial favorites. Mostly straight-forward political folk from an obscure "filk" artist who usually writes about sci-fi and space and stuff, but is also an outspoken anarchist activist who is anti-war, anti-racist, pro-women's rights, pro-LGBTQ rights, and pro right to bear arms

A competent musician, by his own admission. As a performer, arranger, producer, collaborator, songwriter and general rock star artist, though, he was a genius.
