I listen to my 225i on a HifiMan ef2a dac/tube amp. A lot of people don't seem to like this unit but to me it sounds pretty good. I got some other stuff coming but it takes a while to get here from China :)
Whats a good AMP/DAC combo for Grado 225s please (500 or less)? - Page 3

SQ on Rhapsody is not great. I'm thinking of switching to MOG. 256kbps CBR MP3 for purchased tracks; 192 kbps CBR MP3 for streaming to home audio devices; 128kbps AAC when streamed through PC via Rhapsody software; and 64kbps AAC + or 192kbps AAC for streamed or downloaded to Android devices and 64kbps AAC + for iOS ones.
Asgard 2 is $250. I'm looking at the Bifrost and the Peach Tree Dac-it. But, I don't have an external DAC yet.
i have both spotify and mog, i've had spotify longer, so i have a much larger playlist there but mog to me sounds better, its more consistently good.
also, its better at suggesting new music for me.
