I dabbled hi end audio 25 years ago and spend a couple of grand on a hi fi and a set of head phones but lost interest because i couldn't afford what i wanted. I knew nothing about Chifi three weeks ago and i'm now genuinely excited about the possibilities again and I'll carry on following this thread closely.
Oh and excuse the username. All my usual ones were taken and i couldn't think of anything but i was plugged in to my trusty old 1st gen Zune and tried it and it was free which is hardly a surprise (I suppose they are hated on here!).
Wait till you discover the technical perfection that $100 headphone amps (JDS Atom) and $100 DAC's (Khadas Tone Board) have achieved over the past year. You basically get within a hair's breadth of state of the art (without all the bells and whistles nor bling) performance at those prices !
