I had actually decided to get a audio-gd nfb-12, but then there was a lot of commotion on this forum whether or not the nfb-12 was bugged or not, so I postponed the purchase for awhile and I got to thinking. - I am currently in the middle of a new pc build and maybe I should get a good soundcard and a dedicated headphone amp instead?
My budget is approximately $300-400, (lower is better) for both SC and amp.
I have a been looking at the PureAudio K.I.C.A.S. Caliente, which has been getting good reviews with K702.
But what soundcard to get?
