I'm building up my system part by part. Right now I have 3 amps (EF3, LittleDot MkIII, Millett Minimax) and 2 headphones (HE-300, DT-880) and one DAC (Schiit Modi).
Is the Modi DAC now my performance limiter? Given the existing equipment, what difference should I expect to hear if I upgrade the DAC?
- Jump up to a balanced DAC in preparation for a balanced AMP in my future? Like this http://audio-gd.com/Pro/dac/NFB12014/NFB12014EN.htm
- More modest DAC around $250 with opamps?
- Or, Modi is good enough and get new headphones?
