I currently own an Ultrasone HFI-580 and a fiio e17. Since my usage is desktop only I will change my e17 for a stationay solution.
Could you give me some advice what Amp / Dac combination will do fine? I planned to spend around 200$ (150€). I mainly use my headphones to watch movies and listen to music.
My onboard audiocard hast SPDIF / Optical Outputs and I already owned a xonar DX but certain bass frequencies (especially during movies) sounded horrible, since this has improved with the e17 im sure this isnt due to my headphone.
I checked out other threads claiming that the 580s doesnt need an amp however without one there is simply no bass.
If you need any additional info, just tell me!
