My new pair of LCD-Xs should be arriving in the next few days, and I was wondering if it was worth upgrading my amp/dac setup. I currently have the m stage dac and amp located here. A couple specific needs for my setup:
1. I also have a pair of 650s that I would still like to listen to, so I'd need the amplification for their ~300ohm impedance as well as the LCD-Xs 22ohm.
2. I'd like to have a preamp out on the amp so I can control my desktop speakers as well. If all else fails I could buy a passive preamp like the one Schiit makes, but it would be nice to have all the volume control in one knob.
3. My budget is ideally around ~1000.
Thanks in advance for any advice, anything you have to say would be helpful!
