Here's my question: I have several hundreds of dollars of Amazon points built up, so I can buy a nice rig. But I don't want to be a chump either, and buy way over what is optimal for my listening.
100% of my listening is Spotify on a high-end desktop PC, in a quiet environment, where I work alone. I listen to mostly old school funk and Afrobeat like James Brown, Fela Kuti and Tower of Power, and modern acts who do the same type of stuff.
I don't listen to CDs or any kind of audiophile audio formats.
I have my eyes on the Beyerdynamic T90. I want open cans so I can hear when the UPS guy shows up at the office.
I'm also willing to buy an amp and/or external DAC if called for.
My question to you guys -- is this ridiculous overkill for my listening source and music preference? Am I throwing my money away?
Thanks for your guidance.
