Total noob, not sure what other equipment I need.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

First time headphone buyer here. After reading lots of reviews I decided to go with the Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro's and a Shiit Magni amp to power them. I want to use the headphones on my pc, my motherboard is the Asus P9x79 PRO and my case is the Corsair 600T. What cables will I need to hook everything up and are is there any other equipment I need that I'm missing? I'm a photographer so I spend a lot of time on the computer editing, also do some gaming. So I wanted a solid pair of headphones to be able to enjoy music and games. Thanks for any info, much appreciated!

 

Trevor.

Use this 3 foot cable to connect the motherboard's 3.5mm front speaker/headphone output jack to the RCA inputs on the Magni.

(get a longer cable if 3 feet is not enough).
