cheap usb sound/card + amp for beyer dt770 pro 80 ohms?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

hi. i plan on getting the beyerdynamic dt 770 pro 80 ohms...

 

my asus mobo has bad onboard audio, so i plan on getting an external usb sound card (i'm running a mITX build so my only pci slot is taken by my gfx card)

 

i also am thinking about getting an amp for the beyers also. any suggestions?

 

-the external sound card and amp dont have to be portable, since they will sit on my desk forever

-less than $100 for both the amp and the sound card would be preferred

-i want the sound card to be compatible with dolby surround for gaming and general stereo

 

all suggestions are welcome!

but so far i've looked at:

 

-xonar u3

-creative sound blaster x-fi hd

-fiio e6

-fiio e11

-fioo e7

-creative soundblaster x-fi surround 5.1 pro

-fiio e10

 

i looked around the forums about this, but i couldn't find any good answers...

i'm only asking this b/c i've never bought from ebay before, and i'm a little concerned about quality/getting scammed...

Just buy from a seller with lots of feedback.

I've bought on eBay 288 times, only been ripped of maybe two or three times.
