Does the HD6xx pair well with the zen dac? Would welcome your thoughts.. Or any other recommendations at similar price range that would go well with the HD6xx

The HD 600 series pairs really well with tube amps. Something like the little dot mk ii if you can get it would be ideal.

Topping L30 and the Schiit Magni Heresy are better amps than the Zen dac but you would need to get a standalone dac.

While a good DAC is important , the Sennheiser 6XX series of all headphones are very finicky on the amp you pair them with. They scale tremendously with the right amps, if this is the only headphone you are going to use do check out for an OTL tube amp (Anode Acoustic OTL amp is about 20k+gst). You can get a zen dac/mimby in future when a good deal pops up.

This amp and the HD650 are a terrific match.
