Hi all, I am piecing together a headphone setup to use at work. I was told that the people around me didn't appreciate german opera followed by Public Enemy. I guess thats their loss. Anyways, after much reading I ordered a pair of Sennheiser HD650s and I am going to order the Little Dot MKIII because I have always wanted a tube amp and it has some good reviews and well, I can afford it.
To finish my quest I need to find a good DAC. I have two requirements. The first is that it has optical input and second is that it be under $300. Since I am already ordering from Little Dot I thought I might go ahead and pickup the DAC_I. The problem I am having is that I am having a interesting time finding input about it. Most of the time someone asks the question that I am and the thread turns into a debate about $1000 DACs and then delves into baseball or something like that. I did find a review on a HiFi site I have never heard of that liked it but it seemed a little dodgy.
So my question is, Can anyone who ownes one or has used one (or is related to someone who used/owns one but only on the maternal side) qive me a quick yea or nay? Pros vs Cons?
Thanks for your time and input!
