Hi all. After lurking these forums for a while, I ultimately decided on getting a pair of M50's for my first pair of decent headphones. These will be an all around use, meaning movies, music, gaming (mostly in that in that order) and paired w/ my 7th gen Nano when Im on the go.
One small peeve I have is the back onboard audio port is already occupied by my cheap logitch 2.0 speakers and my front case audio port has too much interference for me to have a good listening experience. I could always just use a splitter in the back or just get up and plug one or the other but I like the convenience of having both plugged in. Plus this gives me an excuse to improve my setup and buy something new ;)
Would getting a dac or amp sitting on the desk for easy access be a better purchase than a dedicated sound card with a dedicated headphone jack?
I was leaning towards the SB z series cards since it just fits my budget of $150.
