Best USB DAC/Amp for around $140?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm trying to get the best sound quality from my crap netbook and my ATH-M40fs headphones. I'm not looking to upgrade my netbook (because I can't) or my headphones, but can anyone provide the best USB DAC/Amp in my price range? I've heard a lot about the fiio 17 and ODAC, but I would like some other opinions as I know absolutly nothing about this stuff. Any help would be appreciated!

Also, do I need an amp, or can I just get a DAC and get good sound quality? If a standalone DAC at $140 can get me better sound quality than a DAC/Amp can at $140, that's what I'll go for.

Also, a 1/4 in plug is a plus, but not required.

Klonos,although i know many products nowadays ,i am not any expert,mostly due to my geographical status,but if you are looking specifically for a amp-dac combo a that price range,the first choice i will consider is some of the Audinst model in their product line,as merely as desktop use,not for portability as far as i am concerned.

Just take some time in the community for researching,there should be thousand of the same question you did above,you will able to decide with quite good safety.Good luck!
