What Amp/Dac should I get?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi guys,

I recently got my senn HD 650's off of Amazon, and I have $100 worth in gift cards for Amazon lying around. I've been contemplating buying the JDS labs O2 + Odac combo, but am thinking about spending the gift cards and just buying the amp/dac component separately from JDS. So here's my question: would it be optimal for me to get the combo at JDS, or should I buy another amp or dac in Amazon that I should buy with the cards that will give me equal or better performance as one from JDS labs? Thanks!

I'm currently using the JDS labs O2 amplifier (no ODAC) with my HD 650's and HE-400's and I think its pretty damn good for the price. There seem to be quite a few O2's on ebay for slightly less money than what JDS labs sells them for assembled (the DIY kit is a bit cheaper if you plan to build your own). Honestly as a first amp/dac, I don't think you can go wrong with the O2/ODAC, you can always upgrade later and sell it (they seem to hold their value quite well).


As far as cheap amps/dacs go on Amazon, the Fiio E07k seems to be pretty good value although they might not have as much oomph as the O2.
