Good choice, Sennheiser HD 600 and Schiit Valhalla 2?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello there

 

I need to upgrade my soundsystem on my computer. At the moment i have only some cheap speakers.

What do you think of the combination; Sennheiser HD 600 and Schiit Valhalla 2?

It would run with the onboard soundcard of the computer. Is that a good idea? Or do i need a seperate dac for this system?

Thank you very much!

Thank you!

So a dac-device is required?

Any other amp/dac recommendation for the HD 600?

DAC device is not required....but.

The NFB-15 comes with dual WM8741 DAC chips.

And each WM8741 DAC chip on it's own should be better then whatever DAC feature is built into your motherboard.

Why do you choose the nfb-15 instead of the nfb-11?
