Need help choosing the right DAC/Amp Combo.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Guys, 

 

Im going for the Sennheiser HD 600 or 650's headphones. Now i am looking for a nice DAC/Amp combination to go with it!

 

I did some research and set up a list of potentials.

 

Audio GD NFB-12.1                                                                                             215 USD

Matrix Cube 24 192 ASCR DAC Headphone Amp.                                                  310 USD

NJC-Audio Monitor 1                                                                                            195 Pounds 

Yulong U100 USB DAC                                                                                         225 USD

Yulong D100 ASCR DAC                                                                                       440 USD

Maverick Audio Tubemagic D1 including  OPA627 OpAmp & GE5670W Tube                     244 USD

 

 

What would give me the best sound out of these! 

 

Please help me make my decision.

 

Thanks, 

 

B

My friend now listens to 598 through Audio-GD NFB 11.32 and he's quite impressed with the sound quality of it.

You can check schiit audio gear - quite nice sound and great look (have them myself), but not as much "bang for a buck" as audio-gd. IMHO.

Hi Blogboykes,

 

You might wanna give a look into our DACport as well. Price is now $299.95

 

Here is a Stereophile review where the reviewer used HD-650's:

 

"All was laid clear by the DACport driving my favorite Sennheiser HD-650s, with the clanking stereo sound effects at the beginning pristinely clean, and Lennox's voice sounding natural and free from grain." (http://www.stereophile.com/headphones/centrance_dacport_usb_headphone_amplifier) 

 

Let me know if you have any questions.
