I'm looking for a decent desktop headphone amp that can drive most things I can throw at it. I currently don't have anything too terribly special, just a set of modified monoprice cans atm. But i do plan on getting better stuff in the future.
I currently have a Fiio E11 and I love it, but I want something that I can plug in and not have to worry about the battery all the time. The sound card on my computer is terrible at driving headphones of any sort.
A USB dac would be nice, but it would have to be linux compatible as well.
Is there a place I can go to find out what amp would be best for me?
Or, alternatively, does anyone have anything they would like to reccommend? I don't have a huge budget. Probably would have to be less than 100$, but I'm reasonably skilled with a soldering iron so diy kits wouldnt be a problem.
