My limited understanding of setting up headphones goes: PC > Sound Card > DAC > Amplifier > Headphones. I currently only have the PC right now, without a sound card, and plan to get AKG Q701's.
Which sound card, DAC, and Amplifier would you guys recommend for AKG Q701's? I'm not looking to spend more than $250 for these components (not including the Q701's).
I'll be using these headphones, in order of importance, for these purposes:
- positional cues
- immersive gameplay and movies
- multi-genre music, mostly orchestral, techno and rock
Thanks for the input!
