    Im happy to pay 400 new cheapest i can find in the UK

    HD-700 are great for gaming and watching movies due to the good sound stage and positional audio, and they are easy to drive compared to the HD-6XX or HD-800/S IMO.  Haven't heard a Bravo Ocean but the Aune T1 is not bad for the price and it uses easy to find tubes.

    It's just a amp. I didn't find much differences in too many dacs at this price I had to spend a lot more to hear a difference myself YMMV. Amp sections of some are different though. The Teac UD-301 has a somewhat dark amp that sounds really nice with the 700's tames the highs down a bit but most of my amps are pretty good at that also.
  6. ironcross12
    So what sort of dac would i use with this amp?
    I was thinking something Portable so i could use my headphones with my TV and PC
    But i'm really a noob to all of this so not sure where to go. 
    Seen these seem to get good feedback
    Or the Creative E5
  7. Xamdou
    It is a dac itself too
    Edit : You might want to get a new cable too if you want to use its bal out

    Ok then . The ifi micro I DSD is seriously very good. The Ican don't know for sure. I only heard the micro and not nano idsd but it ran Planars and dynamics's with ease. Don't know about the 700's with it but I think it would be ok. The ifi is a dac and amp and the fiio E 12 is just a amp. I was impressed by the ifi gear.
  9. ironcross12
    Yeah the ifi Looks great and is £400 the Fiio E12 is only £110 so big price jump.
    With the Fiio could i just plug and play it?
    also this seems good but im not sure https://www.amazon.co.uk/Creative-E5-Portable-Headphone-Amplifier/dp/B00OYZP6G0
  10. ironcross12
    what cable would you recommend.
    So i could just plug this in and play?
    I am reading about changing tubes in the Bravo Ocean don't really know what this means.
    i do like the look of it though. Dose it come with any software would i connect my PC speakers to it? 
    Sorry for the noob questions guys.
  11. buke9
    No software it's just a amp. A 1/8 inch (3.5 mm) to rca's from computer to the amp. It also has preamp outs that you can send to powered speakers also.

    I would just get the HD-700 first, worry about a DAC and amp is secondary.  If the sound signature of the HD-700 is to your liking then I would suggest looking in to a DAC and amp to further improve the sound to your liking.  The HD-700 is relatively easy to drive, I use my Sony HT receiver and its quite good for watching movies and it was quite good out of my STX sound card when I used to game.

    I'm surprised by how easy the 700s are to drive, considering their stablemates the 650s and 800s are notoriously difficult. I keep the gain pretty damn low on my amp.
