Amp/DAC setup question

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I currently have ath-m50s and am looking at getting a pair of open headphones such as the dt880s. What is a hood desktop amp/DAC setup that can drive both of those headphones?

$200-300 approx. If that's even reasonable. I saw the o2 amp DAC but I didn't know if there were any other good options.

It is hard to beat Audio GD 15.32 with the budget of 300 US$. You can also consider modi/magni stack.

Heya,

 

Schiit Modi

Schiit Vali (very affordable total tube setup, hybrid)

 

Audio GD NFB 12, 15.32, etc (any version)

 

Very best,

Would either have trouble driving the dt880 250ohm or 650ohm?

Nope.

 

Both will easily drive virtually all headphones. The NFB series will drive planar magnetics better, if that's in your future. The Vali will drive all other headphones just fine, except a select few (and of those select few, all of which happen to be planar magnetics).

 

Very best,
