I need help deciding if i should buy now or save money for better equipment

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

What I want in the long run:

 

  • HE-500
  • $200 DAC with usb + coax or 3.5 mm input
  • $400-600 Amp like the EF-5 or the lyr
  • FiiO X5 
  • $300 Closed headphones for out of house use
  • Portable amp if X5 isn't powerful enough

 

Every year I get $600 dollars for Christmas and my birthday (each, not total) and a few hundred dollars over the course of the year.  Additionally I will be graduating next year so I will be able to buy the remaining items from my list.

 

My current plan:

 

Birthday 2014: O2+ODAC & Mad Dog

 

Christmas 2014: HE-500

 

Birthday 2015: $400-600 Amp

 

Please feel free to give recommendations for the components as well.

 

Thank you for the help

I find your post too funny: The hifiman He560 should come out by march-april. It might be worth the wait.

Hadn't considered them.  Hopefully, the $300 price difference is worth it.

Just high school, but i'll probably get a few thousand in gifts.

OK - that explains it... If you were going to say college, then I was going to suggest you might want to consider investing that money for things you might need soon - like a place to live! tongue.gif

Yep.  I'm very lucky that this is my only financial concern for the time being.
