Just got myself a Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro today. I've never owned any set of headphones except gaming ones. I'm using a Razer Megalodon right now, merely because I have nothing to drive the DT 990. I do have a Sound Blaster Zx coming on the mail, though (but this is obviously for another thread).
I want to setup a desktop DAC/Amp setup. I'm probably not ready to invest on costly gears, so anything entry level will do for. And, I also want to invest on portability.
Musical preference: Daft Punk, Orka Veer, Deadmau5, Explosions in the Sky, kind of music. Other times, classic rock, some country songs, alternative rock, jazz, R&B, Hip-Hop, acoustics, classical pianos.. honestly a lot of about anything is within my my preference. I do enjoy my bass, though.
What I thought about so far:
I want to get a FiiO E9K. Pair it up with Schiit's Modi DAC. And a FiiO E7K or E17 for mobile purposes with my Galaxy S3. Is the combination weird? Or will that even work at all?
How will connecting the E9K to the Sound Blaster Zx work out? Will that even work?
