Recently I have been searching through forums and articles trying to find a way to improve my sound quality.
I listen to music through my laptop which has a Realtek sound card and my headphones are ATH M50s and Sennheiser HD428. And I have a few questions on what to do.
1) Would a DAC such as a Fiio E7 or E10 improve the sound quality? Or do I need a better higher quality DAC?
3) And would the impedance/voltage of these DACs match with my headphones are designed for?
Basically I am not sure if my headphones are underpowered or badly suited to the setup. So, can anybody recommend an excellent setup for these headphones? I just need an ideal combination for the DAC and AMP.
Also I would prefer to use something non-portable that doesn't rely on battery and can be plugged into the mains - just so I don't have to recharge it.
