I've been yearning for a decent hi-fi for years I currently live in a flat and have therefore opted for a Denon DM38 with some JBL Control 1s cheap & cheerful until I know what space I'll eventually have for some serious kit.
In the meantime I'm thinking of opting for decent headphone set up. I'll primarily be listening to CD audio and DVD audio ripped to FLAC.
I'm thinking of the following set up, purchasing the HD-650 to start me off and a matrix mini-I
PC Ubuntu on board sound card > USB / Tos link > Matrix mini-I > XLR > HD-650
PC Ubuntu on board sound card > USB / Tos link > Matrix mini-I > RCA > Denon DM38 > JBL Control 1s
With plans at a later date to put a headphone amp between the Matrix mini-I and the HD-650. Possibly a Schiit Valhalla.
Any comments on this setup for a starter would be welcomed.
