My Headphones:
-Maddog T50RP
-Senn HD 650
-Monster Copper Turbine Pro
 
My Amp:
Fiio e09k
Fiio e11
 
Sound Card:
Creative Titanium HD
 
So I'm selling my computer and will no longer have a sound card, but I really liked the sound of the titanium HD. What dacs/amp combos are out there that would mimic the sound? 
 
I was looking into either getting a Fiio e17 alpen or selling both my fiio's and getting a schiit magni modi combo. 
 
I listen to mostly jazz, kpop, pop, classical.

If your selling your computer, what sources are you playing your music files from?

I would go for the Schiit stack or the O2+ODAC.
 
Though I like the Schiit looks a bit better :p

Yea, I was planning on going for the stack. Question though, If I like pop and find my neutral headphones boring now, what is a very fun kind of bassy can that you guys would recommend? Beyers?

Iirc, the Beyer DT770 Pro's were pretty good in the bass department.
