Advice for a new guy, and a few recommendations

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

 

Hi everyone!
 
I have been stalking the forums for a little while, and really want to get a good set of over the ears and an amp for personal use listening to music on my computer, and on my ipod when I travel.  My budget for a line out device for my ipod, a dac/amp, and a good set of over the ear headphones is 500 bucks US.
 
 
One thing to note is I dont really want bass-boost or anything like that, I want to hear the music for what it is.  If I can get away with not using an AMP/DAC on my ipod when travelling (IE the headphones can still be driven from my ipod) that would be great, but I would still like a dac/amp solution for my home computer.  So far I have been looking at the Fiio stuff for DAC/AMP for my computer.
 
 
Any help for a new guy would be much appreciated.
 
Thanks!
