looking for an amp with bass boost

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'm just about to order the Senns' HD558. Ive read the bass on them aren't as punchy as other headphones but have great sound stage.

the main reason im buying them is to watch movies and work with video.

 

im currenlty using onboard audio and am planning on upgrading (from 2.0) to 2.1 and a new DAC in the future, most probably the Xonar D1/DX.

 

so im looking for just a headphone amp at the moment for my desktop computer that can provide bass boost. would appreciate any suggestions.

budget is around 100$ +/-

 
Cheers

FiiO E10 will give you a DAC and headphone amp with selectable bass boost all in one. Less than $100 as well, depending on your location perhaps?

well the reason i stated above that i only want an amp and plan to get a xonar d1/dx in the future is

A. for my future 2.1 and

B. i read that DAC/Amp combos only play 2 channels

and i want to utilize DTS or DD Sound from the bluray movies.

 

i may be wrong

 

i will look at the E10, do you know of anything else that is only an amp ??

 

thanks
