First off, new member! I'm from Overclock.net but not like that makes a difference here. I'm looking forward to what I hope a community just a friendly or friendly than OCN, no competition here. I will probably love both communities.
Straight to the main point, I'm looking for something to play lots of Japanese music, J-pop, J-rock, Vocaloids, Anime OST's and music included in openings and exits, etc. I don't want to break the bank so...$270-$350? $350's kind of breaking the bank but I think it caps a section of headphones. I can stretch that but not too much. I'm not looking for anything specific since I'm a noob although I'm getting sick of how all the instruments and vocals are thrown together in some blender and blended so they all sound like one massive blob. It's really annoying so I guess I have one thing to specifically to look for. I'm not a basshead. I've experienced enough bass to make it look like a monsoon came through a dirt wasteland that has officially become an enormous mud bath (Beats by Dre) and I don't want that. I guess it could be called audiophile's bass or something like that. I did come across this and stumbled onto another mentioned in there. I would say AH-D2000's immediately (as long as I get them on sale) but I actually want to do the research.
I'm also looking for something to drive these and purify the junk coming out of my computer(s) (although if the signal stays digital at best all the time nothing is ruined) with something great. I really don't want to break the bank so $230? I guess that's more than enough for a lot of options to drive something and get great sound quality (not best). I threw it in here as well because I didn't want to make another thread so sorry for the additional handful of words.
Edit: okay maybe I lied about the all Japanese thing, maybe. I use Dolphin. For those of you who don't know, it's currently the only Wii emulator out there. I don't like to play games like FPS. I might do small amounts of Dirt 3 but probably near none. Anyways, I love casual games and Wii is probably my most favorite console with my most favorite titles when it comes to casual games. I think J-pop and/or some other Japanese genres should cover this stuff. ex. Super Mario Galaxy music I guess is like the majority of Angel Beats and maybe some Black Rock Shooter music (like Yuusuo).
And sorry for the mouthful.
