Ok so i just pulled the trigger on the he-500. TTVJ is having a sale and ive wanted them for a long time...
Here is my dilemma; this is my very first set of high end cans so im starting from scratch. i will be using my ps3 as source while my pc is being fixed so i need a dac with optical and usb input. i have $450 to spend on dac and amp and im not sure what to do.
Here are my options...
*Spend it all on an amp and get dac later.(have to wait at least 2 months).
*Get a dac/amp combo for now and upgrade amp later. (i was told ADG NFB 5.32 or NFB 11.32 have very good dac's for their price but amp is lacking) which one of these are better?
*Buy Audioengine d1($169 and i heard isnt even worth that) and buy amp with remaining $280.
I am leaning toward dac/amp combo for now but id like one with a good dac for future use with better amp. Which is the better option; nfb-5.32 ($430) or nfb-11.32 ($350)? OR is there a better option? Im really new to all this and need some advice... Cheers!
i am using audio gd 11.32 with he500 and i really like it as the dac is very detail oriented and the amp gives around 2.6W into the headphones so i think that is good too..
