Hey, I have a few simple questions for you guys. I don't know, if I put the topic in correct place, but what the heck... maybe moderator won't own me Right now I am proud owner of HD800. Mainly I am using (only few weeks more) it with Carat Topaz DAC or Asus Xonar Essence ST, but i guess, that those devices aren't capable to do magic with those fancy HD800's. I'm going to get me Audio GD Phoenix, because of the obvious reasons. I've heard about great synergy of that particular amp with HD800's, and propably lots of people know what I am writing about. I've heard so much good stuff about Kingwa's products, that I've decided to puy me amp @first, and then DAC. There is no mysterey about the fact, that i want all my rig to be balanced, and i want to connect all that fancy stuff to my PC. There are three questions, that came to me before writing this post: 1. What kind of balanced DAC should i choose (only from Audio GD), to complete my setup? I want to use it all with my pc. The price range is around 1000$. My goal is to get DAC, that won't be weak link in my setup. Any ideas? 2. Propably that question won't fit here, but... what kind of XLR's would you mates choose? I'm guessing that i will be needing a pair of XLR plugs to my cans and additional two pairs to connect amp and DAC yes? I was wondering about Furutech, or AudioQuest plugs, or even those great looking carbon fiber Locus Design plugs. Any ideas? 3. Are there some weak links in my thinking about my future rig setup? Am I doing something wrong here? I mean, I'm new here and into quite expensive audio, but maybe there are some other options worth to think about, than amp+dac setup? Any help would be nice User IpodPJ told me, that gear from Kingwa is superb in its class, and that is one of the reasons, why I am going to buy it. Anybody?
