Dac/Amp used with speakers

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello all. What a great site this is. 

 

I am contemplating on the possibility of getting a Dac + Amp or Dac/Amp combo to connect my macbook and listen from my sennheiser HD 25-1 ii. I would like the whole thing to be as portable as possible. My question is: if i make this investment, would it be possible to drive small speakers with the amp/dac , besides the headphones?

 

Currently I use the Creative Gigaworks T20 but will probably be replacing them soon with reference monitors (i do film editing among other things).

 

thanks

I would say to get a Fiio E10 USB-DAC-Head Amp. The E10 comes with a headphone amplifier and a line-out so you can use it's DAC feature for speakers

Adorama sells the Fiio E10 for $44.99.

 

And get a Lepai speaker amplifier and Dayton Audio B652 speakers, from Parts Express.

 

Should be able to get everything for $150 or less.
