Hello, i am looking to purchase an amp, and DAC for around 200 ish pounds. preferable not more, but may stretch if something catches my eye. I have been looking around, and i really like the Meier Audio Corda Aria, and also the YULONG DAH1 MK DAC/ Headphone Amplifier. Now i am not really wanting an all in one solution, so separate would be fine as well, but i would like an all in one design. I am thinking of purchasing a pair or HD650s, so would like suggestions that are good with those.

Thanks for all your help.

Gautam.

EDIT: i forgot to add, that i will be running these straight of my desktop, and future laptop, so they need to be able to play nice with USB. i dont really need any extra inputs.

For your consideration,

A Zero DAC and LD MK III. That will eat up your 200 quid but will sound pretty darn good with HD650's. How do I know that ? I have the exact setup suggested. The added fun of tube rolling with the MK III and opamp rolling with the Zero. For a budget of 400 US this little system is hard to beat

Peete.

Prickly pete is right. i am looking at combining a keces151 with LD mkV, which is about same price.

Check out HeadphoneAddict's review of the nuforce.

nuforce- hmm, doesn't utilise my dull budget, so i would rather spend more for a better one.
Zero DAC and LD MK III- definately looks interesting. how does this compare to Aria or the DAH1?
keces151 with LD mkV- a bit out my my range, but looks soo nice. i knew this would happen, evil head-fi with its expensive suggestions. i must resist...
