TELL ME WHERE TO GO. PLEASE HELP!!!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Long time lurker first time poster!

 

My set up:

 

Foo bar 2000 (WASPI OUT) -->

 

-->USB 0404--->

 

--->Darkvoice 3322--->

 

--->Sennheiser HD800

 

I am a audiophile in search of better sound. What is my next upgrade?. I love the HD800 and I am looking for something to compliment them. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

Depends how much you want to spend.

 

HD800 stock sound with a good amp are best for classical.

 

So the opposite would be more bassy and forward.

 

Denon

Ultasone

 

would be good

 

Other alter:

 

GS1000i

Ps1000

HD600

T1

Thank you for your reply. I should of been more specific. I love the tube sound of the DarkVoice. I listen to mostly rock and hard rock and acoustical guitar. The HD800 are completely neutral sounding, looking for something that will give it a little color. I am looking for either a amp or a DAC upgrade. Whichever will give me better sound.

How about a source upgrade as well?  Upgrade option include:

 

Benchmark DACs

 

Burson Audio DA-160, HA-160D

 

CENtrance DAC Mini CX

Thanks for the suggestions. I heard the way to upgrade is headphones -> amp -> source, for best sound. So I believe after an amp upgrade I'll go for a source upgrade next. Man this hobby gets expensive.

Get something portable ? Like a custom IEM ? Although that would be a side grade
