I really want to get the Fidelio X1's but it pains me to pay $230 when I saw it for sale on Amazon 2 months ago for $150...
So I have a weird question. I bought an Onkyo TX-SR606 receiver to use when I had surround sound ( way too loud in a condo now ). The reason why I got it is because it has analog inputs, so I can connect directly from the sound card's analog 5.1 outputs to the receiver. Now I am getting in to headphones, and I am wondering the best way to set it up. Should I use the receiver, feeding the CMSS-3D to the receiver via optical? Basically it would use the receiver as a DAC/amp, but I am not sure if it is even worth it. I don't know too much info on the Onkyo, whether it is worth the hassle, or if I should just buy something just for headphone use. Also I can connect the sound cards analog outputs to the receiver, and then just plug the headphones in.
I know this isn't really a "PC" thread, but I was just wondering if you thought the onkyo would be a good amp for the headphones. I have no clue what that thing can power.
