Will def post pics once i get these glorious cans in! 

 

Still have to buy a DAC/AMP though!  Arghhhh - my search has been mind numbing!

Fiio's DAC/amp and Desktop amp combo the E7 and E9 would be a great place to start.

Thanks for the guidance....

 

I'm also thinking pretty seriously about the Maverick Tubemagic Hybrid...any thoughts?

Also, this audio interface w/ an onboard amp I really like

but it seems like the capacity/power of the onboard amp would never do my new cans justice...

What about the Focusrite do you like so much given that it doesn't have a high-power, low-impedance, ultra-quiet headphone amplifier circuit?

Do you need a microphone preamp and A/D converter setup for other reason and just want to use it as a head-amp as a bonus? Because that would pretty much be what you're paying for

And BTW, the Saffire is a very well regarded preamp A/D box if that's what you're shopping for.

You're right - and no a head-amp bonus is not what I'm after, for sure.  I just liked the flexibility in terms of it being a midi interface/mic and headphone amp/and so on.  I think the allure was in the versatility.

 

BTW - I've decided not to pursue getting a Maverick....

 

I gotta buy somethin today because I want my new cans and amp to come on the same day, ugh!
