Is the 650 worth the extra $ over the 600?
Also, I need an amp/dac with these. For the amp I was thinking $250ish and then as cheap as possible for the DAC.
Any suggestions are welcome.
Which ever one you choose ~ I recommend the Audio GD NFB12 + Audio GD Digital Interface.
The NFB12.1 has a decent amp section, beefier than most if you check the specifications and the
DAC uses 2 x Wolfson WM8741 which is just crazy for the $215USD they're asking.
The Digital Interface is to clean up the USB signal and it converts it to SPDIF ~ all you need is
a reasonable Coax/SPDIF cable to run back to the NFB12.
Nothing will touch this for the cash spent. NFB12.1 (out next week) also features 8 different filter
settings to fine tune your final sound preferences.
