* Moshi Clarus headphones
* A computer with a Intel DH77DF motherboard that is running windows.
* No soundcard of any sort.
* No amp of any sort.
I know I'm looking for a desktop amp right now, but I'm not sure what the different types are. I didn't see any sort of guide stickied so I'm not sure where to start.
You should be able to extrapolate my budget from the sort of headphones I have (they were $200). On the basis of that what sort of amp do I want. What sort of input and output should it have and why? What are some important things to look for and common pitfalls?
