To further explain my point (wrt to entry level source/amp with HD800), I'd take the HD800 Vali/Fiio X5 or Vali/Dragonfly 1.2 combo over anything that I've owned before including the HE500 or HD700 with the Bifrost/Lyr. YMMV :)

Heck, you want affordable? Geek out 450 + Vali + HD800 or Geek out 1000 + HD800. 

 

Sounds freaking AWESOME.

ok, i revised my budget to 500$,If you guys had 500$ budget for amp+dac, what would you buy?
So many options, i'm confused.


im considering the geek out,or the audio gd 15.32 or Matrix M-Stage, but im open to anything really because i cant audition anything, just go by what people here recommend me.
Thank you ^_^
post #10571 of 15777

Here are a couple of combo's i've used/heard and liked:
- Schiit Bifrost (if you can live without USB) & Schiit Vali

- Audioquest Dragonfly 1.2 & Schiit Vali

- Can substitue Bottlhead Crack or M-Stage

- or look for a killer deal on a PS Audio DLIII for the DAC

 

Let us know what you end up with.

I would definitely get a bottlehead crack if you can. Either build yourself or find used here, there are a couple for sale.

 

It's supposed to have a special magic with the HD800.

If you could stretch your budget and find a used Dangerous Music Source. You're easily getting a 2k+ (M51, BDA-2) DAC performance in there and it drives the HD800 very well. Killer with monitors as well.

 

You probably won't find one used, but if you do, I'd jump on it.
