hi, yesterday I made my first post in my favorite forum on the web, which is this. I am really eager to proceed more and more in audiophile-ism.
I have Audio Technica m50 right now. I usually listen to music through my computer, but due to frequent power outages in my country, I need to switch to mobile sometimes even when I'm at home. I have a Dell Optiplex 755 computer right now, and the sound is not bad. But I live in a place where I haven't met a singly audiophile besides myself all my life. Hence, i haven't had the pleasure to listen to any DAC, headphone or amp or anything for that matter besides my own Audio Technica M50, and my built in DAC for my computer + my Samsung Note 3. To further my extremely burning passion for music, I want to buy a DAC, as I believe it should get me even better sound than i already have.
My budget is somewhat tight compared to the standard I've seen here it's under $200.
Can someone suggest me a good DAC for under $200? And, I wanted to know, that I have a USB otg for my Note 3. So can I connect just any dac to it via OTG?
I was thinking about getting Fiio e18, but it has an Amp in it too, which I do not need. I think my m50 are pretty loud already. so i was thinking if i could cut off the extra money for an amp, and get the best possible sounding dac in under $200?
I tried searching a lot, but i really couldn't find any question which was exactly answering to my needs, so i decided to make a thread. i dont want to repost, so if there is a thread discussing this stuff already, kindly point me to it.
thanks for the support! :)
