Hey guys.. have seen this forum a number of times in searches. figured I'd join up.
I have.. not necessarily a budget setup, but I probably do comparatively. I just got a new pair of Grado sr60i's. In the past my main set has been my porta-pros. Anyway.. most of my listening is done on my pc that I built. The grado's sound great... but I definitely realize that even decent headphones aren't going to sound all that amazing through a computer without doing much else. The pc I built has a AMD M5a97 motherboard for onboard sound, but I generally use a presonus firebox as my external sound card. Its a device used for instrument recording but has high quality audio.
I'm wondering if maybe there is some good software that I can use to really improve my sound rather than buying a new headphone amp or new hardware. I'm not sure if I'd be best off with just a good EQ, or using something like DFX or SRS. I've used dfx before and it can really improve things for me... but I have a feeling you guys could recommend me something better to really dial in a good sound with the grado's.
