So as you guys know I just bought the Senn HD598, and I diden't buy an amp with it.
I have an option to buy a basic amp for it, only amp (I think, it's not DAC) it's pure analog, for like $80. Is it worth it?
I hear the headphones just high enough volume on my soundcard, will it not only increase the volume but also the quality?
Well what I do feel is, as opose to what I heard in the store.. Maybe it was the burn in mine is currently having, is that at higher volumes, it starts getting off cue... It gets messed up. And I think that if I buy an amp, it will be like (or close) to what I heard in the store...
Would I rather buy an amp for $80 and attach it to my computer, or should I buy a $200 sound card like the Xonar DX?
Which would sound better?
