Hey everyone! I'm new to hi-end computer audio/headphones and wanted to look into getting some audiophile quality headphones for movie watching off my HTPC (when I don't want to use my speaker). Problem is my Denon receiver's headphone output jack will probably limit what kind of headphone I can get due to high impedance and minimal power. So I am considering a USB DAC/Amp combo to help eliminate this "issue".
Does anybody have any experience in a similar situation? I currently run HDMI out (via ATI 5570) into my Denon 2310 receiver which decodes the audio stream. (DTS-MA, TrueHD, etc). I would like to know if it's possible to still run this setup but add the USB DAC/Amp configuration on the side so that I could output via either hardware option?
With that said, does anybody have USB DAC/Amp combos to recommend? I'm looking at using either Beyerdynamic DT 990-600 Ohms or Ultrasone Pro 2900.
