Hey everyone, I'm pretty new to all this.
I have for as long as I can remember been using a headset (awful, I know), and I've now come to that point again where it's time to swap it out for something new; only this time, I decided to do a bit of research on the subject instead of just grabbing a new pair of a brand I'm already familiar with from some random local store.
The result of all this a sparked interest in the audiophile scene, and the K712 Pro seems like a pretty good place to start. Reason I came here however is because I'm under the assumption that directly connecting these to my computer is going to provide me with some pretty lame results compared to what I could get if I were to use a dac/amp setup of some sort, so I'm basically looking for some advice on that matter. Seeing there are quite a few to choose from, I'll just give you a brief description of what I intend to use the headphones for, which is: Gaming, music, movies and.. just about everything, really. But mainly those three core things.
What do you recommend? I'd say go wild, but seeing I'm just entering the scene, lets put a budget limit at $200. I'm all ears for suggestions as far as dac/amp's are concerned.
I'm currently using the FiiO E07K and E09K for the Annie and it works great! but as soon as my Micro iDSD came in, I am mostly selling it.
