    What is the best AMP/DAC combo for HD650?

    I recently purchased the Senneiser HD650s. I'm currently using the Fiio E17k to power them. I will upgrade to balanced cables in the near future. I want to upgrade my dac/amp. Should I invest in something like the Schiit Jotunheim with a DAC card or a separate DAC and AMP? My budget is between...

    DAC/AMP progression for DT-1990

    Some context first. Lately I pulled the trigger on a pair of new Beyerdynamic DT-1990, coming from the DT-770 Pro 80 Ohms, I loved how the 1990s gave me more of everything I loved from the 770s; just for the sake of it, I ordered some Brainwavz and Dekoni pads to take the confort even further...

    Schiit Jotunheim from a complete Pleb perspective

    Hi all, Just wanted to say that this forum has been a real interesting read for a novice, learned a lot and also scared to death a lot. I decided to buy a Schiit Jotunheim with the DAC module, 499.00. Received it today and my headphones are Shure SE846 IEMS. I have had those a little while...

    Balanced Jotunheim w/ HD800?

    Is the Jotunheim a terrible pairing with the HD800? I'm looking for a more analytical headphone with good soundstage to round out my HD650/Jotunheim setup. I don't really want to buy another amp just to use with my next and final pair. I have a budget of $1000 or less for the headphone. I'm...

    Schiit Jotunheim with DAC as an alternative to Fiio Alpen 2/A5 combo

    Hi there, I'm currently using an Alpen 2/A5 combo with a pair of Sennheisers PXC 450 for two things: HiFi Tidal on my Nexus 6P, and SoundWire also on the 6P to watch TV with. I'm considering getting a Jotunheim with the DAC module for the latter as a permanent fixture in my living room so I...

    Hello dear audiphiles, Proud owner of a Fostex TH-X00 ( Ebony version ), I am currently having it paired with a Schiit Jotunheim and would like to replace the stock cable, for two reasons : the TH-X00 stock cable is horribly cumbersome since I have a balanced amp w/ a 4 pins XLR balanced...
