My amazon order I have some akg 712 pros, neewer clip mic and astro 2013 mix amp. Going to hook it all up and play on 360/ps3. I will see what it sounds like first (obviously) but would like a recommendation for amp/DAC. Read on here about the Mont Blanc and the magni/ modi. I forget which is the amp or DAC, excuse my ignorance. Anyways what are your thoughts on what I should buy to really make these sound the best for gaming? Also so I "need" a DAC for these? If so I read I couldn't pair modi and magni both with the mix amp correct?
You will likely want an amp if only to get the volume levels up. If so, the E12 Mont Blanc and Magni are both recommended often around here. One is a portable (needs to be charged) and one is a desktop (needs to be plugged in all the time). Get whichever is more convenient for you, IMO.
Can someone please confirm for me that a dss with a fiio e11 will be enough to drive a pair of dt990 250omhs?
Thanks in advance
These are only 150 bucks on Amazon right now seems like a really good deal? I'm coming from a pair of hd558's and I'm hoping these will provide a more fun and immersive atmosphere for single player gaming. Thoughts? Suggestions??
I can't confirm that as I've never heard the Beyer's. But I know my E11 isn't that beefy of an amp... I suspect you might want a little more juice. Then again, Evs says his DT880 is just fine right out of the DSS so you'll probably be fine too.
