So I'm running a pair of HD650's through my Little Dot Mk III, which is plugged straight in to my macbook.
I'm looking at improving the weakest link in my system over Christmas, and I'm assuming at the moment, this is the soundcard in my macbook (it's NOT a macbook pro).
As well as this, the 3.5mm female headphone jack on my macbook is almost completely ruined. I have to sit the cable underneath the laptop otherwise the connection is intermittent because (I'm assuming) the female socket has become worn over the years.
So essentially, I'm looking for an external sound card that will plug in to my macbook via USB and give me an improved output from that of the internal one, but mostly, it's just so I have a reliable connection between the two.
I don't need a card with any recording stuff on it, don't need MIDI inputs or anything else, I literally just need something that will plug in to the USB port, and give me a 3.5mm female socket to plug the amp in to, without decreasing quality.
Everything I've found has about a million functions I'll never use.
I've got a budget of ~£100-£200. Can anyone suggest anything?
