So currently, I've got a FiiO e7/e9 combo which I use with my Sennheiser HD600s, but lately I've been feeling like maybe they could use a tiny bit more... Something. That said, I've been looking into a new setup, as I rather enjoy my headphones and don't want to change them. Plus, if I do ever upgrade, I'd love to have the setup before instead of looking for one after.
The two I'm looking at are the Schiit Magni/Modi stack and the JDS Labs o2+odac. Currently the MM stack leads as I've read it's very similar to the o2 but cheaper, however the higher gain somewhat worries me as I also want to use this setup with my JH11s too, and the o2 variable gain is a plus.
If anyone has any suggestions, I'd greatly appreciate them! Buying used isn't a problem, I've already had a positive experience both buying and selling on here so that's fine. I'd say my budget is around 600 but the cheaper the better. No tube amps please I don't think I could handle replacing them and rolling and all that.
Sound wise transparency is what I'm looking for, something that colors the sound as little as possible, if its small that's a bonus though I've got a lot of room on my desk anyway.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!
