Hey guys, I’m hoping to set myself up with some decent audio gear for my separate work pc as I tend to listen to music as I work. The bugget is unfortunately fair small max $750.
I like to listen to a bit of everything by prefer a ‘colourful’ sound with exceptionally good punchy bass.
So far I’ve had a few ideas regarding some components but am at complete loss as to what to get with others!
I also indeed to pair this gear up with my DT990 pro 250 ohm headphones.
This is what I’ve been thinking of getting!
Speakers – audioengine P4 ~$250
Subwoofer - ?? I have a pair of Audioengine A5 at home and love them but they could do with a bit more bass the P4 (passive speakers) lacks the bass even more so I think a Subwoofer is a must but have no idea what I should get.
DAC- I’ve been looking at the topping D3 and Audioengine D1 DAC but am uncertain what I should go for, I would much prefer something with both headphones and speaker volume control nobs like a ASUS Xonar Essence One however obviously the Essence One would eat up to much of my budget.
Amp’s – I’ve been thinking about getting either a
- HA2002 (would the speakers work with this)
- Maverick Audio TubeMagic A1 Amplifier – love the looking this one just uncertain about tubs and how much of a hassle they are!
- Schiit Asgard 2
- Topping TP41
I’ve also notice quite a few people running decent DAC and really cheap Amps Should I be spending more on a DAC and less on the amp?
Cheers any help and suggestions would be much appreciated!!
