I recently purchased the 600 ohm version of the DT880.
I currently use them with a powerful A/V receiver but I feel like I might be able to get much better quality through a headphone amp and dac. I have about a $300 budget max on the amp and dac, which will be used at home. I am new to headphones and driving them, so can anyone give me a few suggestions that fall in my budget?
If it's a good A/V receiver then you can invest all of your money in a good dac :)
A long time ago I drove headphones through a/v receivers and they sounded so much better just by adding a udac2.
modi/magni stacks work too....but it really depends on how good your a/v receiver is...
