Power DAC or dac+T-amp?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

hello everyone. I would like to upgrade a desktop audio in my bedroom (6' X 8'), after i read the posts, i decide to use passive speakers because i can have much more choices. My budget is around 600USD excluding the speakers, so i am deciding should i buy a power dac like wadia 151 or nuforce DDA-100? Or buy a small dac like halide dac hd, connect to a cheap T-amp likes trends or kingrex? I am living in Hong Kong so i cannot test halide, and i can only use a small speakers due to space capacity. Very appreciated if you could give me some advice, cheers.

As for DAC - if u also planning to use cans also perhaps something that is DAC with a headphone amp section?
