Based on a lot of reading, I think that the HE-500's fit my tastes the best.
I did have a HE-400 for a while, but returned it because I didn't like it and it was one of the earlier batches that was defective.
I mostly listen to classical music (violin concertos) and stuff that's heavily vocals and a bit of rock.
I like female vocals a lot, and never listen to hiphop or rap.
So I was wondering what would be a suitable combo of DAC and amp for the HE-500?
I do want to keep both of the under 1000, but if there is a reason to go over, let me know.
I was planning on getting the m stage amp back when I thought about getting akg's, but idk if that will run the HE-500's to their full potential. I looked at the Yulong A/D 18 and thought about that combo... but was wondering if there's anything cheaper that will be very good as well.
