Long time lurker here. I was pretty much able to find what I need through the search function but I just can't quite click it all together (my boss wouldn't be too pleased with how many logged hours I have spent on here...)
I am going to be purchasing the DT990 Pro in the near future and I was trying to figure out what to pair it up with. It will be my primary headset for gaming and music on my PC. I am currently using a set of Senn PC350's with a Xonar DGX. I know that the DGX has a built in DAC and amp but I also know that neither are desirable or fully functional for the DT990. Here is where everything gets a bit blurry for me and I apologize if the answers are accessible and my searches were just clumsy. From what I have been reading the DT990's seem to benefit the most from a tube amp. Is there a specific one that would work better with a currently installed DGX? I was also thinking about the FiiO E11 but portability isn't my primary concern as this specific headset isn't the best choice for planes/transportation. It would just be a nice option to have if need be. Or, maybe I am looking in the completely wrong direction?
My secondary question involves my home theatre receiver. Would the previous PC recommendations also apply to my Denon 3313CI? Or can I just plug in the headset and use the onboards? I would be using this mainly for vinyl listening and not anything movie related.
I wasn't hoping to spend a whole lot of money on this as the fairly low cost of the DT990's was what first attracted me to this whole endeavor. If it was worth my while I would be okay going up to $150 total.
I appreciate any help and recommendations you are able to provide.
