Hello all, I've been looking to upgrade my audio from on-board sound on my PC. I have ordered a pair of ATH-M50's and they should be here tomorrow. I use my PC from gaming to movies to music, so im all across the board in audio use.
I have a budget of $300 CAD and would like to order from Canadian retailers to avoid duty charges.
Im either looking for a Amp/Dac combo like this https://www.springwateraudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=6&products_id=96#.UyvJf_ldXPm but I cant find reviews except for one from a different company http://www.head-fi.org/t/550692/impression-ber-muzik-tiny-tube-dac
Or 2 stand alone units like https://www.springwateraudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=6&products_id=48#.Uytn7fldXPk and a http://schiit.com/products/modi
I think I want to go with a tube amp, the dac is what im having trouble with deciding on. Do I go with a combo or 2 separate units?
Any other product recommendations? Thanks for taking the time to read my audio noob post :)
