I'm relatively new to this, but I've been enjoying the sound improvements made by better stuff. My main headphones are Sennheiser HD600 powered by a Schiit Magni (and I have a Valhalla on the way). My current source is my sound card (ASUS Xonar DSX), and I am 99% certain that I will eventually get a proper DAC, but that begs the question: what sort of DAC should I get?
Now to be clear, I am not currently in the market for a DAC partly because my current setup sounds pretty good (and partly because my wife would not approve of another big purchase right now). So I'm mainly asking for recommendations on the next logical step. If I were to stick to Schiit gear, the obvious candidates are Modi and Bitfrost (probably Uberfrost w/ USB). I have a feeling that I won't be hearing too much difference between the DSX and Modi, so I'm probably on track for something like a Bitfrost.
So what do you think? Is that the right direction? Should I explore new headphones and/or amps before I invest in a DAC? Let me know your thoughts, and thanks in advance
