    I love my new Grado SR225E's! But now I want a DAC or AMP to compliment it!

    Long story short, I finally got back into the HiFi (or, rather, budgetFi) game. (For those who care, here's my little Hi-Fi story. You can totally skip this paragraph.) Once upon a time ten years ago, I replaced my very first computer component all by myself: the sound card. 14-year-old self...

    Nice Headphones -> Decent DAC -> Line-in Cable -> Logitech speaker console? -> X-Fi XtremeMusic?

    I was just wondering if this is impeding my friend's sound quality. He's listening to AKG 702's connected to a Maverick Audio TubeMagic D1, which is connect by Line-In to this: through that little sound module you see...

    What headphones should I get to get the most out of my Xonar Essence ST?

    At the moment I have the AD700's , and the Xonar Essence ST is coming in the mail on Monday. I'm thinking, though, that the card is a bit overkill and that my headphones are the weakest link in the system. I'm thinking about upgrading to get the most out of my card so I can truly appreciate it...
