Hi Summit-Fi, I'm looking to build a new high end system. I need an entire system (DAC, amp, and headphones).
-My max budget is $1300.
-My music preferences are: Rock, Electronica, Pop, and Jazz
I look for convincing soundstage, bass impact, and natural representation in a headphone.
I have thought about going with the HE-500 and a Audio-GD NFB-10. I think an LCD-2 setup would better suit my needs but I can't seem to find any amp/dac combination that would do them justice in the $300-$450 range.
I look forward to you recommendations, fellow Head-Fi'ers.
