Hi, been lurking for a few months on and off... decided to join.
Just got a HD650 (read like, 100~ pages of that HD650 appreciation thread) recently, but I've been influenced by these forums to get an amp. As an idiot, I would like to say that the sound is loud enough on the headphones already, so I personally don't think I need one if all they do is make it louder... feel free to correct me on that.
I have FLAC files --> Foobar (WASAPI) --> Omega Striker 7.1 sound card --> HD650 right now.
Also, I've been listening to random songs on youtube lately that I can't get in FLAC... I know youtube has horrible sound quality, but I'm playing the videos in 1080p so that's as good as it gets...
Anyways, what amp can I get around $200-300 cdn (I know, horrible budget)? Dedicated, not portable.... but I'm tempted by those E7/E9s (yes, a n00b's choice)
Thanks so much in advance!
