So i have an HP laptop with a super crappy integrated sound chip, and i have a pair of sennheiser HD 558s, and I want to get a creative X-fi usb sound card, and a cmoy RA1 diy amp, but i can only afford one of them right now. Which one should i get first? I figured that if i got the amp first i would just be amplifying crappy sound, but if i got the creative sound card first, i would have good sound, but it still wouldn't be at it's full potential because it wasn't amplified.
I wanted to know what you guys thought. Should i get the creative sound card first or the diy cmoy RA1 amp first?
