    It is a tube amp alright, but I doubt it will power the K701s well. Try looking into LittleDot amplifiers and perhaps the Head-Direct tube amps, even the EF2 powers the K701s alright same goes for the lower end LittleDots.

    At that budget... I would stay with SS.
    However if u can get a Little Dot or a Headdirect or even a Darkvoice... u will be in a good shape. Remember the amp is just one part of this equation. U will likely need to spend some money on tubes/cables etc. So think long and hard....
    Also look at Headfi.org for more guidance. They also have a very active Buy/sell section where great deals can be had.
    All the best!

    if you can, save some cash and get yourself the Matrix M-Stage.

    those goes extremely well with the K701
