I am in the market for a new DAC and Amp to be hooked up to my HD650's. The main source of my music will be my PC. As of right now, I have a StyleAudio Carats Emerald DAC/Amp emerald. I'd like to sell this and upgrade with either a seperate DAC & Amp or a combo. Doesn't matter to me. I'd like to stay under $400 for both combined.
So what would you guys recommend for the HD650's? I liked the Carats emerald but I feel like it didn't provide enough punch and wasn't as warm as I would of liked it. Are tubes the way to go? I don't know much about DACs and Amp's so sorry in advance!
