I am really a beginner as a audiophile. Just got my apogee duet 2 yesterday. They worked amazingly on my recording. If I am not wrong it can also be used as a DAC right? I only use MacPro or iphone for listening to music (flac or 320 kbps). I have a Denon adh5000 and a ultrasone edition 8. At the moment I am just using the Nuforce HDP. Since I got this duet 2, so I thought I can pair it up with a proper hp amp (I can right?). The built - in hp amp in duet works really well on my denon 5000 (because it's a better impedance fit?).But edition 8 gives me a lil bit brighter sound. I believe duet 2 is sort of same as original duet. So anyone who used duet 1 can also answer my questions .So here are my questions.
1. Is it really necessary to get a proper amp to pair up with duet? Will it make big difference?
2. If it is necessary. I wish to generate some more warm sound to my edition 8, so what suggestions you can give me on amp to bring out the best of my hps? (or just can pair up really well with duet? I say under $1000)
3. Sorry I have to ask this specific one since I have never had a full size amp before (So I am stupid here^^). So how can I connect a amp to my duet? (I assume through the breakout cable of the duet?) And what kind of cables do I need? (Since I found almost all the amps on the market only come with a power supply)
Thank you very much for the help in advance
