I just bought a new iPod classic 160 to go with a new BeyerDynamic 1350 portable headphones.
After reading everything I can find on Head-Fi, I'm trying to decide whether to add a DAC or DAC amp to go with the above.
I'm looking for audiophile sound quality while traveling on airplanes (I have an audiophile home speaker setup). If I can get great sound out of just the iPod, I'd certainly prefer to not add the complexity of another powered device. However, if it makes a difference, I'll add the DAC or DAC Amp. Was considering the Fostex HP-P1.
I enjoy a broad array of music, from Rock, Acoustic rock to modern folk music... with some electronic/dance/pop thrown in.
Any advice would be appreciated!
