I've lurked for a while doing my fact checking, but I'm having trouble making a final decision on a portable amp/DAC combo.
I'm planning to listen primarily from a laptop and am thinking to pair it with either a Beyer dt 1350 or V moda m80. I heard the dt1350 was good for rock and more balanced, so I was leaning toward it over the m80. As far as the amp, originally I was looking at either a Practical Devices XM6 or Audioquest Dragonfly, but after hearing about some other great under 500 amp/dacs, I've also been looking at the Apex Glacier and Ray Samuels Predator. Sadly, I have no way of test listening to any of these, so I was hoping for some suggestions on which of these would pair with the dt1350 or m80 or any other amp/dacs under 500 that might work. If it helps at all, my home setup is a Senn HD650 powered by a Schiit Asgard and I very much like its sound. I listen to primarily rock, but also a lot of vocal stuff.
Any sort of advice or input would be much appreciated.
