I am looking for some good/better audio for my PC, but I can't decide what to do. I currently use my 2.0 HiFi system and the Beyerdynamic T70p headphones for audio, but I want better. The idea is to get an all-in-one system (USB DAC/Amp/Headphone amp) or a Creative Sound Blaster ZxR with an external amp. I want to completely bypass my onboard soundcard on my Asus Maximus VI Hero, so I can evade the crappy software of that soundcard. I have been looking at several options like the NAD D 3020 and the TEAC A-H01, and both devices seem to be good, but I want some feedback. The external amp/all-in-one should be as small as possible. I have also taken a look at the Peachtree Audio iDecco, but it is actually to big for my desk. My current maximum budget is around 450 euros.
Sorry for the little information. I can't think of anything else.
