18 Years An Extra-Hardcore Head-Fi'er

No. Meaningful or not is a value judgement and the decision is personal. You can absolutely tell the difference between a $15k dac and a $30k dac. I personally think if your finance permits you should always get the best dac/source for your setup. As between headphone and speakers, it’s generally easier for an average person to pick out differences using a speaker setup vs headphone. I also wouldn’t let some reviewer sway your decision given most had limited experience with headphones.is there some truth in saying that DAC upgrades after a certain point are no longer meaningful for headphone-only use?
