there are a few depending on where you want to go... for a simple fix and something you can carry around the Fiio E18 [android compatible] works wonders, and your going to want an amp dac combo for under $200, as a dac works best paired with an amp.Hi,
Recently I bought the soundmagic hp 100 headphones and now i am looking for a dac to enhance the quality of the sound because I am using the soundcard built in my notebook. I think the jds labs odac could be a good way to go but i want to know which other options I should look at (under 200 bucks).
indeed, JDS sells a combo oDac and O2 amp unit,The ODAC is undoubtedly a good DAC, but you do have to get a headphone amp to go with it. Not meant to power headphones on its own.
For something uber portable for a notebook, look into the Audioquest Dragonfly. It' a small USB DAC/headphone amp.
