I currently own a pair of Astro A30s which I use with an Asus XONAR DG soundcard for games, movies and music. I've decided at last to upgrade my headphones to at least a newby-audiophile standard, and think that the Beyer DT 990s would serve me well.
I'll probably be getting the 250-ohm PRO model if I go through with it, but I think the Xonar DG only supports up to 150-ohm impedences. What's a good desktop amp I can get in order to help power the 990s? Is there some way that I can also plug the amp into my soundcard so I can keep the Dolby Headphone and EQ functions that the card provides?
I'm looking to get as much bang for my buck as possible, and don't need anything too flashy. I'd also like for the amp to have a volume knob if possible.
Furthermore, would you recommend the DT990s for gaming? MadLustEnvy's guide says that their positional audio is pretty good, but some people have disagreed...
Thanks for your time!
