Which DAC if best source is going to be 320k streaming service (MOG) on MacBook Pro?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

While cost isn't a major concern, I also don't want to waste money knowing my only source will be MOG, which streams at 320k, on a Macbook Pro.  I have no interest in having a debate about the quality of the source or a compressed vs lossless battle.  This is simply a result of a specific need in a specific environment.

 

My initial thought was to go with something like the Dragonfly, which is also a headphone amp, as opposed to a more traditional outboard USB DAC + head amp, which may or may not be too much given that the source will never exceed 320k.  BTW, I'm also looking for headphones for this - and only this - setup, an am open to any style (in-, on-, over-ear).

 

Thanks.

Fiio E07K ($90), USB-DAC-Headphone amplifier.

Gemini HSR-1000 (Takstar Pro 80-Ohm), closed headphones, $68-$90.

Dragonfly is a good place to start.  You could also look at Audioengine D1, Arcam rPAC, Wyred4Sound uDAC, Leckerton UHA-6sMkII.

 

HD-25 is a great recommendation for on-ear.
