Saturday 19.10.2012 i bought a pair of bowers and wilkins IEM's, today i found this forum and have realised that for me to satisfy myself i need to upgrade from these IEM's to a more stationary setup with full-size earphones, amp and DAC.
i'm a student for the time beeing so i dont have a lot of money, but my budget will be around 1000USD (can stretch a little).
i'll use my PC (aser aspire 7745G) as source (audio output's: optical, 3,5mm minijack and HDMI).
i listen to lots of different music, but punk/metall, classic rock, and some dubstep is the most common.
as the opening states i'm completly new in this game, if i've understood this correctly all i need is a pair of headphones, amp and a DAC?
what will be a good set-up to start with?
my thougths were; phones: Sennheiser 650 HD, Amp: little dot MK III, DAC: Little Dot DAC II
is this a good set-up?
sugestions on changing any of these components?
the most anoying thing si that where i live (Tromsoe in norther Norway) is that there aint somewhere to test or listen to the different components, it's a smal town
P.S. because of where i live i can only shop in the internet stores with international shipping.
P.P.S. i dont know if the thread is plased in the wrong sub-forum, but i'll take my chanses in posting it here
