DAC/Amp under $300 for HE-500

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello all,

 

I own a pair of HE-500s I'm very happy with, but the receiver I've been using as my amp appears to be on its last legs.  What are some good suggestions for a DAC/headphone amp combo capable of powering these for under $300 or so (used or new)?  If possible, I'd like the DAC to support optical input.

If you live in US, Emotiva mini-x ($200-ish) for the amp, Schiit Modi ($99) - done. You'll need some specialized cables to hook it up though (1/4" female TRS to 4 banana plugs).
