Hello! Thanks for your time, this is my plight:
I have an HD558 and i pair it with a Fiio E7K with my laptop as the source.
I plan on getting the Sennheiser HD600's this winter, and i am aware that my Dac/amp combination is probably not very efficient for it.
I have read up on combinations, but i am by no means an expert... so if you were once in this position, please let me know how you solved this dilemma.
My ideas right now are getting a Schiit Modi, which seems like a reasonable Dac for the price, and then i have been thinking of combining it with a Fiio E9K.
I know i could just get an E9K and pair it with the E7K i have, but the Dac section of it leaves a little something to be desired. Or maybe i'm wrong, and it's the HD558 that is not as revealing a headphone as i thought.
Thanks in advance.
P.S: Budget is $200
