I'm new new to the forum world but not the audio world. I've got a stereo put together over 40 years.
I'm using the following:an Audio Research Ref 3 pre-amp, Krell Evo 402 power amp, Aerial 10t speakers and a Linn LP-12 turntable with Ekos arm and Helikon cartridge, Tom Evans phono stage, Cary 303/300 CD player-even a Sansui tuner from 1980 or so.
That out of the way, I'm out of my league in headphone amp/DAC/headphone arena. I've done some reading on the forums and gotten enough knowledge to realize I'm in a different world.
I listen mostly to rock n' roll and blues and jazz. I'm a child of the sixties and thrilled to have been there. Don't remember much so I must have been. Right now I'm using the audioengine D1 dac and audio engine 2 desktop speakers. I need an upgrade.
I've thought about the Schiit Bifrost/Lyr combo, Woo WA7 Fireflies, and the Woo WA6-SE/WDS-1 pair. As far as headphones go, looks like HiFiman HE-500(or 560 now), Audeze LCD 2, or the Beyer T 90. The last are the only I've demoed as it's a bit of wasteland here trying to find this kind of gear.
Any thoughts, help, direction, experience would be appreciated. Thanks
