Looking for a dac/amp that I can plug A2's and Headphones into!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey guys I am kind of new to audio and to be quite honest most of this is over my head.

At the moment I use AudioEngine A2's
http://audioengineusa.com/Store/Powered-Speaker-Systems/A2-plus-B-Powered-Desktop-Speakers

These sound really good but all I'm using is the on board sound from my MB.

I'd also like to pick up these headphones (Senn HD598's)
http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-Headphones-Burl-Wood-Accents/dp/B0042A8CW2

So what I would like would be a nice Dac/headphone amp that I could sit on my desk and have easy access to. I'd greatly prefer it if the thing would let me plug my A2's (speakers) and headphones in. This way I'd have limited hassle with cords.

Finally I'd like to pay $200 or less to be quite honest. Not looking for top of the line here, just something obviously better then on board!

 

Thanks!

As a bump here..

 

I was looking at this review.

Someone linked that to me over on overclock.net. That almost looks exactly like what I was looking for. Would it be a significant improvement in sound over the motherboards audio?

Hi there, 

 

Why not just get the Audioengine own D1 (amp/dac) ?
