I just bought AKG Q701's. Well they haven't arrived yet but they should in next week.
I want to enjoy them in full power. I know I need at least a headphone amp. I've read these forums and found that the EHP-02 has cheap price but great value. I'm unsure is amp enough or do I certainly need also a DAC. That would be another $200-300 making the price of EHP-O2 + DAC something between $400-500.
Well there is always other options. I could buy Amp/DAC in one package. Something like Matrix Cube or iBasso D6 etc. Amp/DACs are bit cheaper but because I want to get the best out of my cans I'm willing to pay some extra if buying EHP-O2 + DAC gives me better result.
So what do you think? Which option is better? Pay $500 for EHP-02 + DAC or pay the same price for Amp/DAC? Or do I get along only with the amplifier?
Thanks in advance.
