Thanks you all for having such a nice forum for headphone-guys.
After lot of research wrt my choice of music and budget i ended up buying Beyerdynamic DT 770pro 250Ω.
But I'm not able to decide on the DAC/amp, i was waiting for the fiio E17 but after listening to its( friend bought it) i don't think its able to justify the cans (may be I'm wrong, as just listened to 2-3 songs only)
As per my limited knowledge, I'm doing all possible reading but I'm not able to reach any conclusion as what should i buy so that the cans can be justified.
I listen to almost all forms of Rock,Indian semi-classical and some pop (Madonna,seal,).
I prefer listening to Hi-fidelity music ( hdtracks.com, SAD, etc)
I'm looking for some DAC/Amp which i can hook with the SPDIF output of my PC, as USB has limitation in playing hi fidelity audio.
My budget is max 200$, (cheaper is better, but even i can go beyond this budget if the amp/dac is able to justify the price).
currently i have certain products in mind,
- Cambridge Audio DACmagic 100,
- Pro-Ject HeadBox II
- confused about which fiio model.
- Maverick Audio TubeMagic A1 Amplifier or D1 DAC ?
is anyone of these able to justify my needs?
please help me deciding what should i buy irrespective of my above said choices.
im open to anyone who is selling their old amp/dac too.
