With all the headphone gears I've accumulated over the past years, I've always ended up just using my little JBL Spyros and neglecting my headphones. I never thought about upgrading because I didn't have desk space for proper speakers, but I'm moving soon and I'm looking forward to upgrade my speaker setup and making it my primary audio output.
I have a Maverick D1 headphone amp/dac, but I'm not sure if I should try and sell it and get a different amp/dac for speakers; however I'm ready to part with it since I barely use them for the purpose of headphones powering.
As for speakers, I've been hearing conflicting things about getting active and passive speakers. I heard actives are great for computers for the desk room and fewer equipment parts, but passive speakers end up having better sound quality.
I was thinking about getting the Audioengine A2s (so about $100-200 for the speakers) and doing whatever I need to get my dac/amp setup well alongside, or maybe the infamous Daytona (or some other passive) /Lepai combo since desk space might not be a very big issue. If it's any help to narrowing choices, I love my treble and that's why the only headphones I'm planning to keep are my grados. Any recommendations on what setups are great bang for the buck?
