I currently use 5g Ipod > LOD > RSA Tomahawk > Senn HD650 at work. I have decided that I want to upgrade my source. I don't care one bit about portability, so I plan on bringing in an old netbook that sits unused to host all of my music in FLAC. I still plan on using the Tomahawk and HD650, I just need to figure out what DAC to plug in the middle of it.
I listen to just about every genre equally. I like my music to be a little more punchy (if only I could get away with the mega sound leakage of my RS-1's at work), so something high energy and not laid back would be nice.
I'd like the budget to be roughly $200-300.
Thanks in advance!
