Recommendation - dac/amp- AKG Q701 - KRK Rokit 6 G3 -Cables

post #1 of 4

Hello peeps, hope you are well.

 

i don't know how to phrase my question or how to ask but here goes .

 

 

i just had a few question  and needed your recommendation, i have done a bit of research but its overwhelming, to much to read and absorb and  understand in the  sort time that i have on the pc. 

 

i have build a pc new system for the first time, its allmost done just got few case mods to do, i thought i would concentrate on the sound card and some 2.1 speakers and headsets, how hard can that be boy oh boy was i wrong .

 

first of all i didnt know nothing about audio, nvm an audiophile person, but after reading some threads and asking some question on OCUK i quickly learnt the few option i  had and what certain terminology meant, and generally how audio works. 

 

my first step in the world  audiophile. 

 

i have ordered the q701 should be with me in next couple of weeks there were on discount price.

 

i know that i have to allow  time for them to burn in  and also i can do bass mod on these headphones

 

im also considering the KRK Rokit 6 g3 studio monitors.

 

 

at he moment i don't have any dac/amp or sound card.

 

 

ok my questions are 

 

1. what would i need and how would connect them 

 

headphone - standalone amp-or combo dac/amp

 

KRK Rokit - stand alone DAC- 

 

 

what im confused about is the connection in and outs and lines etc how would i connect all this up to my pc

 

 

i know that i need amp my headphone but i don't need amp for the KRK Rokit correct because it has an already amp built in.

 

so if i was to get a combo(AMP/DAC) and connect the KRK Rokit to the DAC and headphone to both amp and DAC and connect the usb to the PC right? can this be done on one divice?. 

 

 im  curious  what would happen if i connect the KRK Rokit to an external amp? 

 

 

 

Recommendation 

 

combo dac/amp or standalone dac and amp or buy sound card or receive ?

 

budget  200.00 pound  

 

i would rather use balance connection 

 

sorry im in rush so the format is ugly , if you need more info just late me know look forward to your reply

could i use the Focusrite Scarlett to drive the AKG Q701

is the Focusrite Scarlett dac/headphone amp combo?

is there difference between balance and unbalance - trs-rca in terms of SQ

im not using it for recording only playback

if these wont drive the headphone could you recommend something that will and also it would allow to connect the Rokit 6 g3 through TRS Balance, or unbalance either that is external Standalone or combo DAC/AMP or a receiver.
