I recieved my Grado SR80i's 4 months ago, these are my first pair of real HiFi headphones, Im loving the grado sound signature. Now I am planning to get a DAC/AMP combo to improve the sound experience. (I mostly listen to 16 bit FLACs)
This device has to be good enough to drive higher end headphones, I should be upgrading to SR325i, HD600 or MS2 in a couple years. My budget is 200$
The candidate list:
iBasso D2 Boa
iBasso D42 Mamba
I'm getting really interested into iBasso DAC/AMP's. I've been reading that they are the best devices for ~200$
I must emphazise that I'm searching for a device that has a great DAC section. DAC is more important than the amp section for me because grado headphones are really easy to drive.
Any help and recomendation is welcome!
