So from what I've read, the AKG's K series are very meticulous and controversial when it comes to headphone amps. Some people say you do not need an amp, and others say you need an amp that is greater than $500 to be driven. I watched a video from a youtuber called MKBHD and he really loves the D1 and says that the built in amp can run most things. How well would the D1 power the AKG K7xx? I was also looking at the JDS labs objective 2 headphone amp which seems to get very good reviews. Are there possibly better alternative Dac/Amp combinations that are superior to the D1?
