HiFIman HE 500 ---- Which Audio GD DAC/AMP ?

    Hi there,
    i got a Hifiman HE 500 just  arrived, but i cant use it with my PC sound Files.
    So i need a DAC/AMP and i am really interrested into the Audio GD Line.
    I dont need no line output or something special, only a powerful AMP with a good DAC just for Headphone Usage.
    My Budget can handle up to 500$
    But there are a two Audio GD options with Headphone Jack.
    (The GD Fun, The GD NFB 5)
    All i know is that the Hifiman got only 38 Ohms, but needs a lot of Power, at least 1 Watts because of there low sensivity of 89db/mW.
    Which one would be the better AMP/DAC for only Headphone Usage with a PC ?
    Thanks for the attention you payed [​IMG]

    Going off what the Audio GD site says, even the lowly Sparrow, the NFB 12, and NFB 5 all have 3.5watts at 25ohm, which is above 2 watts at 38ohms. I dunno how the hell they have that much power, but as long as Audio GD isn't lying, that should be enough.
