then I would suggest you start a thread for advice (or maybe you can state it here). in there state your budget and your current headphone(s)and source (don't forget your sound of preference) so people can suggest the best match for you.
what you need keep in mind is that sound is very subjective topic due to how different people perceive it. so IMHO the best thing you can do take the best advice you can get, and the rest is trial and error. so like most of the senior member here said "your mileage may vary".
For simplicity's sake, I plan on the Big 3 (K701/HD650/DT880). My budget right now is $600-700 for an amp and source, but it can be elevated if truly needed. I'm looking for an amp that is warm enough to take the high edge away from the K701s, but still has enough clarity to hear true distinction between all 3 cans. I don't care if it's a DAC/amp combo. If they're separate, all I care about for the DAC is that it has optical in/RCA out and carries a clear signal (I'd rather the amp do the coloring if possible, but if not, ok).
I don't see how this is at all relevant or helpful. I'm conversational in French and that has taken me 6 years of study to accomplish. At this point in my life I have neither the time nor willpower to devote to learning a third language, and even if I did, the site is registered as ".com" meaning it is inherently written in English, making learning Chinese unnecessary. Therefore, if they want to sell their products to a significant degree, they should communicate effectively in English.
The site does take some getting used to, but once you deal with Kingwa and Edwin, after a while you understand a bit better. I was apprehensive at first and took the plunge and I'm glad I did. Have purchased several products from them....Great products.
Audio-GD products are talked about more in the "Dedicated Source Components" sub-forum. There was a time when he was putting out so many products so fast it was crazy....lol
Here is a thread I started about a year ago when I received my NFB-3....Lots of good info on there from lots of posters...
Why is that, is it because their DAC sections are more effective than their amps? I've had several recommendations to buy a DAC/amp combo from them and bypass the amp section, using a different unit as the amp.
