Its my birthday next week looking at getting an upgrade, my budget is around £100 - 125. If an AMP is worth the extra money to get more juice out of it i'll be happy to buy a desktop one. I generally listen to all different sub-genres of hip-hop/rap alot of 90s and more modern with similar beats like new york style.. A Tribe Called Quest, Slum Village, MF Doom, Large Professor, Pete Rock, Nas, Wu Tang, Odd Future, Kendrick Lamar.. etc.
The reason I don't want to spend much is because I'm looking at getting a bookshelf speaker setup in the future.. I was recommended the Beyerdynamic DT880 Pro but they start off at £200 over here which is a bit out of my price range.. Can anyone give me a few recommendations?
