I've been reading up for a few weeks on different head phones and the only doubt I still have left before getting some a900s is their use of a 1/8 jack. Does anyone know from experience if there'll be any noticeable loss in quality in using the adapter as opposed to having a genuine 1/4 plug? Seems to be a strange choice for entry level enthusiast cans.
Okay I lied, one last question. Which set up will sound better when used with the a900s?
X-Fi Xtreme Music + $300 amp
X-Fi Elite Pro
The Elite pro has a better DAC and slightly better opamps, but I'm not sure if that outweighs a dedicated amp. The fact that the a900s supposedly don't need an amp also makes the question a little tricky.
