So today I finally completed my audio chain. I made basically all of my purchasing decisions based on the information that I've gleaned from these forums, so I figured this is where I would go for help once I had the gear.
As of right now, this is the setup: MacBook Pro Optical Out > MonoPrice Mini to Toslink Optical Cable > Schiit Bifrost > Bluejeans Cables LC1 RCA interconnects > Schiit Lyr with 6N1P tubes > Sennheiser HD650 with stock cable
My question to you is this: I love the sound, but honestly I feel like it should be better. What is the weakest link in this audio chain? I'm aware that some burn-in time for both the headphones and the tubes is required, but how much of a difference does that really make? If I just wait will the sound noticeably improve?
Value is the most important thing for me, so basically I want the biggest sound impact to dollar ratio.
Thanks you all in advance for your advice. I'm excited to be a part of this community.
