Hey guys, new here
I recently got a pair of AKG K701 from a headfier here. I have not received it yet but I have a few questions.
1. I will be using these with my computer mainly. My computer does not have a sound card. Do I need a DAC to drive these?
2. There are many DAC/AMP all in one units out there like the audio-gd sparrow, but are those good enough to drive the k701?
My budget for now is around $200. But I am willing to go higher if you guys really think spending those extra $$ will really make a big difference on the sound quality.
So give me recommendations of DAC, AMP or DAC/AMP around $200. Or if you think I really should spend more $$ to get the better DAC and AMP, I'm all ears.
