I'm building a small summer house and I want to have a good setup for headphones and speakers/sub. I have Sennheiser HD650 and Denon AH-D5000 at my home and a small integrated tube amp with subwoofer (both from Glow audio).
I think I will go with the MrSpeakers Alpha Prime or Audeze LCD-XC for my summer house. I'm however a beginner so I'm not sure one what to go for regarding DAC and AMP. I would also have bookshelf speakers with subwoofer which would be connected to the same source (sonos and the tv).
Here are two scetches, one showing how I think the system will be connected and a simplified sketch of the room:
My budget for amp/dac is about $1500 (give or take). I like warm sound (therefore I have preferation for tube) and deep bass (when represented in the music).
As I have two sources (one coming from the tv and other coming from Sonos) I'm not sure how I would connect it without switching manually every time. I don't think leting the Sonos stream through the TV is a good method as it could impact sound quality.
So what I'm primary hoping for help with is:
1) Suggestions on amp/dac
2) Connecting speakers, headphones, sub, tv and sonos together so it will work seamlessly.
I'm also looking for help with choosing the speakers and sub.
