Hey all, been doing a lot of searching over the last couple days, and just cant seem to find what I'm looking for. Here's what I'm working with:
I have a laptop and my PS3 at my desk. I want to use USB out to the DAC from my laptop, and optical from my PS3. Connecting to it I will be using my Shure SE846, and possibly in the near future, a pair of HD650 or HD700. I also want a line out to run the DAC to my desktop speakers.
Options I have looked at are:
What I am looking for, are something similar to these amps, with a sound signature that would be similar to my RSA Shadow that I use for my portable setup. My budget is ~$500, but these all seem to be on the lower end of the budget. While I know price isn't the end all, is there something very similar to these that would be a couple hundred more that would offer a noticeably better DAC/Amp? Is there anything better that I should be looking at for my particular needs? Thanks in advance.
