What would you buy with $1,000 if you were me?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am looking to spend less than 1k total.

My current collection of headphones: ATH-M50s, Image S4 IEM, VMODA M-100, Beyerdynamic Custom One Pros, Sony XB700. (Sound Isolation/Bass Head!!!)

I listen to electronica, rap and metal and also do a good bit of PC gaming.

I currently use a Fiio E5.

 

I was drawn to Schiit audio and their Bitfrost and Asgard 2 Products...

 

Do I even need a Amp past my E5 for my low impedance headphone collection?
Will a good DAC give me any bang for buck with my current sound needs?

Technically, no. But I would get one regardless. I assume you're running your signal out of your onboard mobo soundcard yes? If so, the Bifrost would make a helluva difference. The amp would just complete the job in making music sound so much better!

I have not heard anything from schiit pass the M&M stack so I can't comment, but my audio GD 10.32 sounded night and day difference to my onboard sound solution.

Was in the same situation as you. Was gonna order the Bifrost and Asgard 2 but settled on the 10.32 when I realised I got a better DAC + Balanced output.

what would you recommend out of the current audio GD lineup for my purpose?
