I'm looking for a pare of dac and amps for under 300 dollars and I hope that these will work well enough for these headphones. Will they?

best headphone amp for the sennheiser hd600 or hifiman he400?
Gear mentioned in this thread:
You must be new around here. Lately everyone has been going crazy over the Vali. You can get one and a Modi for ~$250 after tax/shipping.

It depends on a lot of factors....
Will you be running multiple sources to the same dac/amp?
Are you going to have speakers running out as well as headphones?
Do you have any space limitations?
What is your source? Computer audio, CD player, vynyl?
I will only be using the dac and amp for my headphones
I already have an amplifier for my speakers.
I don't see how space limitations could be a problem, unless the amp and dac is fricken huge.
My source is my computer, 320 kbps mp3 files.
I have both the HD600 and HE400 running off a new Vali and I really love this new amp. It matches up well with both but it makes my HE400 really shine. My normal amp is an Asgard 1 and I like the Vali better. You won't be disappointed using it with either one. I am using an uber Bifrost as DAC so I can't speak for the Modi.
