HD650: Acer M5 Laptop-> Asus Xonar U7 -> ZERO 24/192KHZ DAC

Thread Starter 

Hey all

 

Wanting to find out recommendations to power my HD650

 

Im using a Acer M5 Laptop and has no coaxial out.

 

The DAC/amp im looking at has only optical and coaxial in.

 

So using a Xonar u7 (external) to by pass this as I will be able to conect the U7 via usb and then connect the U7 to the Zero.

 

Doing this as a cost effective way to power the HD650s.

 

I have heard that the Zero is amaing value for money.

 

Any suggestions would be great.

 

Cheers

This might be slightly out of your budget, but I think the best value for the money currently is probably one of the lower end audio-gd DAC/amp combos, such as this:

With a USB input you'll be able to sell your soundcard altogether so it might be worthwhile.
