First time buying Hi-Fi equipment - Am I doing any mistake?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Music I listen to: Arctic Monkeys, Pixies, MGMT, The Smiths, and some old school rap like N.W.A

 

 

This is my plan:

 

Player: Colorfly C3  (Player budget: ~140$)

Headphones: Koss Pro Dj 100 (Phones budget: ~80$)

 

 

*** You are free to offer me other gear instad of the current player\ phones\ amp ***

**Note: I live outside of the USA, amazon is not an option for me.

 

 

(Please help me, because I have 0 knowledge and the gear I wrote is 100% from reviews I've read)

Isn't it true in the headfi world like in the hifi world that speakers make much more of a difference than amplifiers on the performance and sound quality of a set up? And both way more than transports? I would add the two together and buy some better headphones at around 220$ and then in the future upgrade your player. (though you will find yourself wanting to upgrade the headphones;))

Why bother with flac, if it's not a direct rip from a cd or something it wont matter. Just use your iphone, apple has ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec) which is pretty much the same as flac, but smaller filesizes, and works with ipod/itunes

with your budget you won't need to use flacs,but that's what i think.
