Ok so I'm new to this website but I've been reading the forums quit a bit for some product knowledge. I've just recently got into the headphone realm and purchased a pair of ATH-M50's (I know these aren't the holy grail of headphones...but I like them). I've been looking at DACs to get for them and I've decided on the Audioengine D1.
So I have a few questions in regards to the pairing of the two?
1. Will It really make that much of a difference in audio quality? (I listened to mostly FLAC.)
2. Is the D1 a DAC or a DAC/Headphone AMP? (Some Sites say it is, others just say DAC)
3. The ATH-M50's are a low ohm headphone, they shouldn't require amplification, correct?
