Ok, so I am new to the world of hi-fi, but have been looking at the forums and the web for some time now and am a little confused.
I aim to get some high end planar headphones e.g. Audeze LCD-3, HE-6 etc. I understand they require a good amp to drive them. I was wondering...if I purchased 'x' planar headphones, the Chord Hugo DAC, would I then pair it with a separate amp, e.g. ALO Rx MK3-B and then a player e.g. A&K 120? I realise this might be overkill. Does this set-up incorporate a lot of redundancy?. In other words, what separate high end components are required for a 'perfect' portable setup?
