Which desktop amp and DAC should I get for my HD 558?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I hear most of my music on my PC and I am about to get a proper desktop AMP and DAC but I want to get them seperately for each component so they can specialized in what they're suppose to to.

 

My budget is quite limited so for AMP I have narrow it down to either Bravo Ocean tube amp or the Audio Technica HA20 both are around the same price maybe 50USD extra for the HA20, which one would u guys choose?

 

For my DAC I can't really decide which one to go for though, so hopefully you guys guys can help me out in deciding my DAC my budget would be about 100-150 

 

Feel free to suggest other AMPs, even if it's AMPS / DAC component 

 

Thx :D

If you wanted to save some cash and only spend $20-$30.

The Asus Xonar DG (PCI) sound card's headphone amplifier can easily drive the 50-Ohm HD558.

 

You could try a pile of Schiit.

Schitt Magni head amp, $99, and the Schiit Modi USB DAC, $99.

So $198, plus any tax and shipping.

Stuff seems to be well liked.

I can't answer your question but streetdragon owns the HD558's and the Bravo Audio Ocean Tube Amp so you could PM him and ask him how they pair together.
