I need a new setup, usb-dac, tube-amp & headphones. Budget about 300-400$ for each part. Could possibly invest more if the increase of sound quality will be notable.
The sound I'm looking for is a warm, lush, dark sound.. Emphasis on lows & mids. Lows need to be heavy, fast, tight & controlled. Mids need to be silky smooth. And highs must be mellow and rolled off.
I will be purchasing these things off of e-bay, so the amp should be chinese as that will make acquiring it much easier.. I live in a country where it can be difficult to get ahold of things like these.
