Unfortunately, I lost my super.fi 5 pro's.
Because I am selling a lot of personal things, I will have money to put towards audio equipment. I plan on selling the HD555s because I will purchase Westone W4's for use at the PC and portably. Now, I don't know about the rest. I hear things about:
- Tube Magic D1
- Xonar Essence STX
I have no idea which of those to use, or how even to set it up. For optimal results, should I use D1 with onboard? I literally have no idea how to setup from Computer --> W4s optimally.
Is a D1 an amp as well? Is it equivalent to a soundcard? Can I use for a TV as well down the line (TV --> Tube --> Spakers) to power speakers?
Then I was also just looking at a Striker 7.1 --> E11 (portable and PC) --> Westone W4s.
What do you recommend
