Best way to drive a hd600 for around 225$ amp&dac

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello head-fi community, I eagerly await a set of hd600s I have on the way from razordog audio. Now I have about 225$ to spend on driving it, that is, with both a proper dac and amp. I'd prefer new, but don't mind buying used if it will keep me in my price range. I've been looking at the Schiit Magni+Modi stack, as well as the o2+odac stack which are said to be very similar in sound. I've heard of a few audio-gd dac/amp combos and seen some in the for sale section of the forum and wondered about those. Just recently I came across the thread about the Aune T1, a tube dac/amp. I've never used a tube amp but the idea of rolling tubes seems awesome to me. Any opinions from first hand users?

O2/ODAC or the Schiit stack, people say the schiit stack because it is cheaper. I'm a Schiit fan, they make great products and have exceptional customer service. Get the Schiit stack and don't look back!

I have to second the recommendation for Schiit. Excellent company and excellent product. Made in the USA.

yea after re-thinking it I've decided that schiit stack probably the way to go. Maybe down the line ill try out a tube amp.

I have a fiio e10 and now I'm wondering if maybe I should just get the magni first and then maybe upgrade to a better dac than the modi when i save a little.
