Helping out a friend, needs an amp/dac to go with (possibly balanced) Senn hd650s

As the title says, my friend is looking for a decent low cost amp/dac combo of some sort to pair with his hd650s. He's currently using my old Audio-GD Fun version B. What kind of system could he expect to upgrade to that would pair well with the 650s?

The magni/modi.  At $200, It's quite a good setup for the price.  Plus it's cute tongue.gif

That's one of the options i've been looking at for him.

 

Any chance of something that could be balanced near this price point? I've heard good things about balanced hd650s.

?... The magni/modi is about as balanced as its gonna get in it's price range.  It's been compared to the o2/odac which is known for it's neutral and balanced sound.  Take a look: http://www.head-fi.org/t/642401/comparison-and-review-magni-modi-vs-o2-odac

I was referring to 4-pin xlr balanced, but I managed to convince him to look into the magni/modi combo. 

 

Thanks for the help MadMolly!
