What do I actually need?!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi guys I currently own a JH5 IEM. I have been using it with my laptop through the earphone jack and I found it to be horrible sounding, not even close to the sound of my iPhone 4. the sound card cannot be changed, so I am looking for a device to bypass that crappy sound card and enjoy my music.

question is, what is that device?! An amp or a DAC or a combination of both? I don't think I need to 'amp' my JH5, because according to the sensitivity and impendance, it's so easy to drive I don't see i need a full size setup to make it sound decent.

I was considering a Tube amp/dac from Bravo Audio, is that the correct solution for amping a custom IEM? thanks.

But in all seriousness, read about the mini3, is a hell of an amp. DYI stuff usually are, specially for the price. and there are people in the ofrumd who will gladly build it for you, i got mine for 100$ and works like a charm. it is kind of heavy tho, and a bit bulky-
