Help with picking out a pre-amp for Astro Mixamp

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello, 

 

I have an Astro Mixamp that I use for Xbox and PC. I have a Beyerdynamic DT 990 250ohm premium. They actually sound pretty decent even without an amp but I know I'm not using them to their full potential and they're a little on the quiet side, so I'm looking for a pre-amp that will be going into an Astro Mixamp. I'm open to most price points if it will make a significant impact on sound quality. My main concern with these is gaming, and music being a secondary use.\

 

Thanks!

First, you should still indicate a budget. Otherwise, here's a good pre-amp.

Second, I'm not clear on why you think a pre-amp would help sound quality? A good preamp should have zero effect on sound quality. And since you have a volume control on the Mixamp, then no need for that feature of a preamp. What's the audio signal chain here for how you imagine this all hooked up?

"Pre-amp"?

 

I'm assuming you want to plug a external headphone amplifier into the Astro mix-amp's headphone output jack and plug the DT990s into the external headphone amplifier?

Schiit Magni headphone amplifier, $99.
