Good evening all.
Apologies in advance if I have posted this request in the wrong section, but I feel my request covers a small range of areas... that, and its my first post so go easy!
Anyhow, to the point you say... Well, after some deliberation, head scratching, and numerous hours of Google searching, I have just ordered myself a pair of GermanMaestro GMP 400's, which I feel should about suit my audio taste down to the ground. I'm now however left with the problem of amp/dac..
I'm currently running my old Sennheiser 485's through the headphone port on my Rotel RA-04, which to my untrained ears sounds pretty good. The problem with this is I'm running my audio from my PC with no DAC and feel I should probably sort that out when the new headphones arrive as to make the most out of them. My question ultimately is, for a budget of no more than £100, should I stick with my Rotel amp and grab a dedicated DAC, or would it be an advantage to buy an integrated DAC/headphone amp, and move on from the Rotel completely...?
I guess ultimately what I would like to know is, what should I buy!? I am considering grabbing a Topping D20 to stick with my Rotel RA-04 - unless there is a better option?
Any advice is more than welcome, I am after all, an audio novice :)
