Hey guys,
 
I know there are a couple threads like this but I just wanted to explain my situation.
 
Right now I have the HFI-580's running on a HT Omega 7.1 Sound Card...nothing special.  I've had the 580's for a couple years now.
 
I've been eyeing the Pro 900's for quite some time but have been waiting for the price to drop.
 
And luckily enough, the price dropped to 236 today! I know Ultrasones are easy to drive but do sound better with a dac / amp, and honestly I'd like to keep the Dac / Amp under 100.
 
First things first...is this possible? I mean for Pro 900's do I need to spend more money? or can it be done under 100?
 
And if it can be done under 100, is the Fiio e10 any good for the Pro 900s? I was looking at that dac/amp for my 580's before the price drop on the 900's.
 
Any suggestions for a dac / amp would be greatly appreciated :)
 
And I listen to about 80% EDM, 20% rock/metal if that helps at all :)

Anyone?
 
I've been reading up and many people recommend an amp with the 900's.  I just don't know if the e10 will be enough for the Pro 900 or if I will have to get a separate amp with the e10.
 
Please any help will be appreciated, I'm about to buy the 900's.
