I'm new to headphone amps and DAC's. Bought a Senn HD600 new from Amazon last year at a great price and am now going to purchase an amp (with pre-outs) and DAC. Pretty much decided on the Woo WA2, which is the limit of my budget. Temporarily had purchased a FIIO E10 USB DAC/Amp for $75 last year until I was ready to spend the $ on a good amp. (No enjoyment there, but I was not expecting much.) I'm hoping the headphone and new amp will keep me happy for a long time, as I'm not one to keep upgrading. (Recently sold my stereo Conrad Johnson PV6 preamp which I had for ~25 years!). I have a few questions:
-Am considering the Bifrost DAC, would that be too polite of a DAC for the HD600/WA2?
- Any other DAC suggestions in the <$500 price range?
I'm will be feeding it ripped Flac files and Hirez downloads from USB out.
(I'll cross post this in the Woo WA2 forum also.)
