Its my first post, although I've been reading (and trying to understand) this forum for some time now.
-Mostly, I'll be listening to music (rock, jazz and classical - don't know if it ends up sounding vague, but anyway, mostly rock, and 80% of the time led zep, cream or lou reed), but I also watch movies quite frequently, but I'll not be playing any FPS. Other than that, I think I'd rather listen to music in speakers than in headphones.
-I use a laptop with Zalman ZM-RSSC V2 which I think is pretty awful, so I'd be needing a new soundcard or a DAC (am I right in thinking that I only need one or the other?), Other than that, do I need an amp as well, or a receiver?
-I live in a 30m² one-ambient apartment with 4m-high walls. Also, I'm from Brazil, which means some (or most) speakers will be hard to find (but please, do suggest).
-What I praise the most in sound is it being well-spacialized/detailed (specially during distortion - being euphonic, is that what it's called?) yet being full/juicy, that is, well-embodied. Well, at least the most I can get for the price I'm willing to pay.
(Have I forgot anything I'd need in terms of hardware?)
Well, thanks in advance.
