HD 598 Amp/DAC help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone, I am a new to the world of quality headphones and I just ordered a pair of Sennheiser HD 598. I will be using them for bunch of things. For Xbox gaming and Movies I will just have them plugged into my Dennon AVR-1312.

 

I am planning to use them for music with my laptop too though, (mostly classical, all FLAC), and I am quite overwhelmed trying to figure out what Amp and/or DAC to get. In a perfect world I would also like to use them with my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 from time to time, but that is not an absolute prerequisite.

 

Unfortunately I only have about $125 to spend, but I know I can at least get something that will work well for that price.

 

Thanks in advance for any and all advice.

I'm assuming your using HDMI cable from the gaming console to the Denon, then HDMI from the Denon to the TV.

 

This $20 cable with a 1/8" 3.5mm plug will work with the HD518/HD558/HD598 headphones, make it a little easier to use the headphones with portable products (3.5mm jacks).
