Watup dawgs? I'm looking for a desktop amp/ dac. I have a 50 ohms sennheiser HD 598. I'm a noob when it comes to the audiophile world and a couple days ago, I read an article by NwAvGuy regarding headphone amplifiers. From what I can understand, buying an amp such as the FiiO E9 (an output impendence of 10 ohms) is unfavorable for any headphones with lower than 80 ohms - the formula being, headphones requiring at least 8 times the output impendence of the source).
So my question is, whether buying very expensive amps/ dacs such as the Schiit Asgard or Pico amps will not match well with my HD 598, which as you know has a lower-than-average 50 ohms. Is there a specific range of headphone amps/ dacs that I should be looking at, when looking for a source to combine with a low impedence headphone? Any advice is appreciated.
