Best way to spend US$550 on an DAC and on an amp

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello guys, I bought a sennheiser HD600 this week, it will arrive next month, and I am planning to buy an amp and a DAC to pair with the HD600, so, my budget is $550 to the Dac and the amp, and I wanna know the best way t spend that money, if $200 on the DAC and $350 on the amp for example. I was thinking on the Odac by audio poutine and The schiit Lyr, but I didnt find Where to buy the Schiit lyr, What do you guys think?

Personally, I would buy the Audio-gd NFB10SE DAC/Amp and reterminate the HD600 to balanced. For $550 (before shipping) you could have it with a remote.

I'd say either go Asgard/HRT MSII+ or Valhalla/HRT MSII

 

Both should be highly musical with the HD600.  You can always just go DacPort and still get wonderful performance while saving a LOAD of cash.

 

IMO, the Lyr goes better with the Planar Magnetics vs. the Dynamic headphones, but once again, that's a preference that others may or may not agree on.
