I Currently have a Xonar Essence STX, 

For now just plug the Sennheiser HD650s straight into the Essence STX.

 

Down the line when you have $300 to spare, replace the Essence STX with a Audio-GD NFB-15.32 external DAC/Amp.

The Essence STX comes with a PCM1792A DAC chip and a headphone amplifier that can drive 600-Ohm headphones.

so it should do a decent job driving the 300-Ohm HD650 headphones.

 

The Audio-GD 15.32 is just a really nice DAC/amp for the price.

I've been using one for a month.

The DAC you want does not have a headphone amp inside it, so you would need to buy a headphone amp separately. The Audio-GD NF-15 is both a DAC and a headphone amp, so you can actually plug headphones into it.

can you show me the link to buy it, because my searches are turning up the manufactures website and I can't seem to find the order button.

You send them an email (listed on their contact page) saying what model you want and the address the DAC/amp would be send to.

Get the TXCO upgrade ($20).

They send you back an email with the total price, using Audio-GD email address you pay the amount thru Paypal  and with in 2 days they ship out the DAC/Amp.

Mine took 6 days from time payment made to when it arrived at my place in California.
