Hi, first time posting, but long time stalker.
Newbie here, I need advice for an upgrade path for my current headphone setup. I am using Creative Titianium HD soundcard ------> Fiio e17 (via TOSLINK SPDIF)----------->Sennheiser HD 518. My budget is around 500$.
First of all, I am totally new at this and have bought the previous components over a long period of time. I just recently became interested in high quality sounds for listening to music. So my question is this:
1. Is my current setup considered ok? if not what I am doing wrong?
2. What's the best component upgrade I can get for around 500$?
Thank you so much in advance.
