I've had an e7/e9 combo for my pc for the last year and a half or so and my e9 recently died so I'm looking to upgrade both components for my 650s and 598s. I use the 598s for gaming (40% of the usage) and the 650s for everything else. I've got a budget of $600 and would like to get another good amp/dac as I have no onboard sound card in my pc.
What can you guys suggest that would be a substantial upgrade from the e7/e9 (don't want to buy the updated versions) in that price range?
Thanks in advance for any replies.
