Yesterday I went to Charlotte Head-fi gathering and listened to some gears. And then sorry to my current setup. I just can't find reasons to love them anymore.
So, I am trying to upgrade my amp and possibly DAC for Hifiman He-400. The combined should be under 600. Currently I used pupDAC and JDSLab CMOY amp.
The goal of this upgrade is to make music clearer, especially for treble. Now I find the music veiled. I need to turn the volume up a lot to feel treble, but then the bass is too strong and deafens me. I am not sure if it's caused by DAC or amp or it's just the signature with this can. Anyway, I looked around and found that Lyr seems pretty good. But should I upgrade DAC too? Any ideas on other combos?
I have no space restriction or portable needs.
Thank you for any help!
By the way, yesterday I listened to LCD2 with Woo7 Fireflies and I think that's the final goal I aim at. It's just soooo good. Do you guys think HE400 with this upgrade will remotely match them? Honesty that's one big reason for this upgrade.
