<$200 DAC+AMP Help?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hello, I will be purchasing a DAC+Amp to partner with my Beyerdynamic DT990's (250 Ohm) and I would like to know which of these DAC+Amp combinations would be the best? I am looking at the Fiio E10, the Fiio E07K/E09K Combo, and the Audinst HUD MX1. I am open to any suggestions but which of these should I acquire?

What sources will this DAC and amp be plugged into?

Is this audio setup for music? gaming? movies?

Stretch your budget a little, or find a used Leckerton UHA-6s. Fantastic value, hard to beat. Very solid product that punches above its weight.

So, I'm assuming this is for PC gaming?

 

Asus Xonar DX or D1 sound card, used $60

Schiit Magni headphone amplifier, $99

 

You might be able to get away with just getting a Creative Sound Blaster Z (SB1500), $100.

Comes with the same DAC chip (CS4398) as the Xonar DX/D1 and a decent enough headphone amplifier.

if your going to play games and music Purpleangel is dead on, as the Creative SBZ will do the positional audio and sound good to boot. I run DT770's pro (250ohm) with a Titanium HD and Schitt Magni and have no complaints at all. i play a lot of FPS shooters and the positional audio is great.

Now I'm think of changing my user name to "Dead Purple Angel" or "Purple Dead Angel" or "Angel of the Purple Death" or "Angel of the Purple Dead Star"  or "Angel of the Purple Deathstar", etc.
