I'm also looking at the Schiit Magni. I'm not a huge audiophile, so I most likely won't be able to tell the subtle differences between the two and the aesthetics care much more pleasing on it. Me throwing the DSS in there was kinda just showing what I have now to give you guys a better chance to help me with moving forward. Thanks to you both!
How would the Essence STX compare to the O2 (Schiit Magni) DX combo? I've heard that these particular headphones are very selective with how they like to be amped.
EDIT: Or! Getting the Schiit Magni Mod combo and using the cheapest dolby headphone processing sound card I can find, something like the ASUS DGX (30 bucks on amazon right now) with the "listen" feature in windows?
