Hi, I have a budget of $500, that can go up to $750 if necessary. I want a really good amp/dac combo for my HD 600s, seperate units or a single combined unit works. I am running off a windows desktop that has optical, headphone, and usb. Any reccomendations?

Low cost idea.
Asus Xonar DX or D1 sound card, $70
Schiit Magni head amp, $99
Is this setup just for music? movies? gaming?post #6 of 91/20/13 at 11:26amThread Starterpost #7 of 91/20/13 at 3:59pmQuote:
The Xonar/Magni is still a good combo, for the price.
Or maybe you want to a tube amp. like the Little Dot MKIII ($250)?post #8 of 91/20/13 at 4:42pm
