I'm new to using headphones for sound other than portable SE-530's
Previously I had a home theater with Revel Ultima2 speakers, acoustically treated room, and JL subs. Unfortunately I'm selling my house and packed everything up. My point in prefacing this is I'm no stranger to good sound, which brings me to headphones now that I'll be apartment or condo living for a while.
This brings me to my current situation. I'm completely new to this.
I bought LCD-3's based on the amount of appreciation they seem to get. I'm currently powering them through a computer only. I've heard, and feel, that they need an amp.
I know there's lots of amp recommendations on here, but I just don't have time to sort through all of them. I am looking to spend 1 to 2k to bring out the full potential of these. I think they sound good, but the experience is nowhere near the Revel set up I'm used to.
Also, can I play flacs through my computer to the amp?
Should I get a DAC as well, and what's a good recommendation?
Thanks for reading,
