Hey everyone. I'll be pickup up the Superlux HD668Bs soon and I've heard that you need an amp to get the best sound out of them. I have a few in mind. I think I heard this is good: http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-XONAR-Headphone-Audio-Card/dp/B0045JHJSS/ref=zg_bs_284823_1 and it's only $16 after rebate, then there is this on in the same price range: http://www.amazon.com/Creative-Blaster-Audigy-Performance-Headphone/dp/B00EO6X4XG/ref=zg_bs_284823_2. 

Any suggestions or input on these?

I have googled Asus Xonar DG and superlux hd668b and it seems that people have paired these together nicely. I'm wondering if anyone has input in if I really need a sound card.

Thanks,
Me

The Asus Xonar DG or DGX sound card is about as much as you would want to spend for the HD668B.
Or maybe find a really really good deal on a used Creative Labs Sound Blaster Z sound card (better DAC chip then the DG/DGX).
Like this, current bid is $30 (shipping is $11.55).
