I can bring my Audio-Technica QuitePoint ATH-ANC7b, Grado SR 325is. I only had a entry level DAC/Head Amp and I'm still learning.
Only a wannabe audiophile atm. I have an eclectic music collection though. I am on the verge of purchasing a new set of cans i.e. the HiFiMAN HE 5 LE but not sure how to go about driving them with my current setup...Stuck and was wondering whether you local guys can give me some advice? Can I buy another headamp e.g. Headphone Amp 160 and connect it to my Maverick Audio DAC? I'm abit lost on this front and would appreciate if anyone can steer me in the right direction.
Thanks pkwak and Guys in advance.
I'm not quite familiar with the DAC but it does have an analog output. Therefore if you buy the Headphone Amp 160 you can simply connect it up to the DAC using RCA cables as syvr suggested.
However, this will bypass the headphone amp in the Maverick, so the signal chain will go source (computer, digital input etc)> Maverick DAC> Amp 160
It may not necessarily improve the sound though, you might prefer the Maverick's tube amp.
