Mid-Tier HP Laptop with v0/320 mp3s > e07k > DT 770 Pro 32 ohm (with velours).
Where is the weakest link? I'm thinking the amp portion of the e07k correct? Wondering if an upgrade would be worth it? Sell and buy e17? Add an e09k to my setup? It may not match well with the low impedance of my headphones. Sell and Buy a Modi and Magni stack? But then I still need a portable amp for my Portable setup with my IEMs (see sig).
I use the 6db gain on my e07k, but the 0db can get loud enough. Should I be using the 0db? The 6db gain sounds better to me somehow even though the no gain would theoretically give me a cleaner signal, right?
I also use the headphones for gaming/movies on my ps3 by connecting them to an amped headphone jack in the logitech z506 system which is connected to my ps3. Buying an e17 would let me connect via optical in, but I don't care about bit perfect sound in this setup that much.
I am probably going to buy an open headphone in the future, likely the HE-400. Not sure if I should wait out for an upgrade til that point. I just don't want to be under-utilizing the dt770 right now.
edit: oh and music is 90% rap.
