So I ended up going with the dt770 80 ohm version, because I found a pair cheaper than I could get the 32 version for. They just came today and they sound awesome and are super comfortable, but I want more.
Right now I have a Xonar DG, I don't really use dolby headphone all that much, so going to a DAC/AMP combo wouldn't really bother me, I've been doing some reading and I've heard conflicting things, and some of the threads were back from 2010-2011, so I'm going to ask in this thread to see what the consensus is.
I've seen people recommend the following
- Fiio E17 / E017
- Schiit m&m stack
- Matrix M-stage USB
I was seriously considering the m&m stack or a Fiio, and then I read this from another forum
Magni isnt good IMO, too much noise with low impedance-headphones and you dont need so much power.
The E07K is not good for the beyers, the DT770 needs more resourcefull power, I mean, more controlled and refined power, if not, the bass misscontrols a lot.
I was kind of thrown off because I saw people recommending Fiio stuff in other threads, and the Schiit m&m stack was also recommended. I'm drawn to the Fiio line of products because they are lower priced, but is it worth it to save up and get something better? I'd love to hear other people's experiences, if you have these cans, what's your setup?
