Long time lurker here, and I am looking for something new to listen to. I am thinking about getting a new set of cans and upgrading my amp/dac at the same time for my work setup. I currently have a TMA-1 and a Fiio E7 that I bring everywhere with me. I use this at work as well running a USB cable from my macbook pro to the E7 and use the dac and amp from the e7 to listen to MP3s and Spotify at work.
I am thinking about getting the Beyer DT770 Pro 250ohm version and combining it with another purchase of the Schiit Magni and Modi. It seems like for the money (~$200) there isnt a better amp and dac combo out there. I was thinking of staying in the Fiio family and getting the E17 and E09, but the Schiit combo seems better and is cheaper. It would also give me a different signature to listen to as well.
Is the DT770 a good match with the Magni and Modi? My music tastes are all over the map: Electronic (Daft Punk, Fatboy Slim), Rock, Classic Rock, Indie Rock, and some other stuff like Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Muse. I like stuff with good PRaT, as I am a programmer and web designer and a quick beat helps me code faster.
Would you suggest another amp and dac combo? What other headphones for the Magni/Modi would you suggest that pair well with my music tastes and are under $350?
Thanks for all your help in advance.
