I can give you ten good reasons and I hate Beats. This thread is the most elitist defener circlejerk in the entire forum.

Good looking setup for a newbie to the audiophile world!
 Well, I'm also a speaker junkie, so mine has a large footprint. I posted it two pages back I think, I have a NuForce uDAC running into my vintage Marantz 2252B. Fantastic speaker amp but honestly it's a beast of a headphone amp. I was gonna buy a Schiit to complement my old Pioneer stereo amp before I got the Marantz and put the money into restoring it, but the vintage Marantz are highly regarded headphone amps because of their dedicated amp they have inside.
