Really don't think there would be an amp made for home theater use, being that HT is typically multi channel set ups, and most headphone usage is 2 channel. I'm sure any of the amps mentioned would be good for movies, and your HD650's should be alright, though they do leak sound a bunch.

I have read good things about the Deckard amp, nice looking, too, here's a store demo unit for $529, https://www.razordogaudio.com/produc...INQxoCrhvw_wcB

After rereading my posts, I've really been asking the wrong question after the first few responses. Ive learned there's no amp made for home theater so thanx for setting me straight.
I'm just looking for an amp that would sound better or more suitable for movies versus music. I've received some solid suggestions and from what I've gathered, most to all seems to fit my needs.

Ok, another question so please bare with me as I appreciate your patience.
Firstly, I don't believe the Jot amp with a DAC is feesable for what I'm ultimately looking for with home theater. I'll just get the Jot amp without the DAC for HT.
The question is, I'd like something permanent for my PC for music.
Would it be feesable to go the route with a modi 2 and magni 2 combo for the PC or am I going about this all wrong?
The Jot won't be portable so I'm assuming I'll need another set up for my PC that also won't break the bank that's quality too.

If you want something that wont break the bank for PC music, that is also very portable and can be used with windows OS, Apple OS. Android devices, and iOS devices, check out the Audioquest Dragonfly Red DAC/amp. Its the size of a USB thumdrive yet packs a big audio punch. Extremely clear audio (even clearer sounding than my Schiit Bifrost/Meier JAZZ-ff setup) and very good dynamics and detail. It can be used with a wide variety of hardware too: plug it into your phone or tablet and get the same quality audio as when used with a latop or desktop machine. Probably the most versatile DAC/amp in existance and it has very good audio quality.

Funny that you recommended that as it's in my Amazon cart right now. Now
With your recommendation and all the user and professional reviews out there, I'm going to pull the trigger on the dragonfly.
On another note, I did purchase the Jot without DAC for headphone usage on my HT. Getting stoked and can't wait to get it.
Also exited to hear what that little red dragonfly can do.
I'll give everyone my take from this virgin amp owner once I get everything, hook it up and test drive it.
Thanx to all (especially to you Vracer111) for all the input, advice and recommendations.
Cheers.......Greg
