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?
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
