Hello, I'm just an entry-level audiophile that prefers good-quality music. Currently I own a Sennheiser HD555, and I would want to invest in an entry-level rig.
After extensive research that also fit a student's budget I have come up with 4 feasible options:
1) Purchase an Audinst HUD-MX1 DAC/Amp ~$180
2) Purchase Music Streamer II (DAC) & Schiit Asgard (Amp) ~$400
3) Purchase Little Dot DAC_II DAC-2 DACII DAC / Headphone Amplifier ~$260
4) Purchase iBasso DAC/Amp (D2+, D4, or D10)
And in about half a year, I might upgrade my headphone to Sennheiser HD598 or HD600 or future updates to HD6XX
Given the above conditions, which path should I choose? I want the best value from the money spent...as I am tight on budget. Will the DAC/Amp combo drive HD600 well? Any other advices and suggestions are welcome! Thanks!
