I have been researching choices of headphone amplifiers and DACs to build a desktop rig.
I currently have an All-in-One desktop PC that I will use as the source - coaxial out or USB to be used to connect a DAC and amp.
I have been reading about Burson Audio HA-160 and it seems it might be what I am looking for. I need a few people to help me make sure that it will be good for my Beyerdynamic T5ps. I also bought a pair of FA-011s, but the synergy is more important with T5ps for the time being.
How do you think Beyers pair up with the HA-160?
I am also thinking about getting a DAC to pair with the HA-160 and searching for information I stumbled upon two options:
BA HA-160 + Cambridge Audio DAC Magic or BA HA-160D with its integrated Pre-amp and DAC.
Which option do you think sounds better? I checked the prices and it seems that buying HA-160 + DAC Magic will save me around $150 comparing it to HA-160D, but oes not give me the comfort of use with just one device.
