Hello all head-fiers, I need some help about my new system.
 
I'm so interesting about the HE-500 in these days. I think I will get the HE-500 soon.
 
So now I'm considering about dac, and amp. I heard the HE-500 needs some powerful amp. But, the thing is I'm totally newbie in this area.
 
I NEED YOUR COMMENT
 
Here are two options in my mind.
 
 
1. CEntrance DACmini CX - I saw many threads and many people agree the dacmini is nice dac/amp for HE-500 and also other headphones.
But my current headphones are all outdoor low impedence headphones.(I worry about headphones output impedance.)
 
2. Grant Fidelity TubeDAC-11 or Yulong D100 mk II + O2 amp - I heard there's no better buy at $350 than the TubeDAC-11, and also heard O2 does decent job with HE-500.
 
3. Any other recommend?
 
 
I've been searching and searching of these things for a starting new system. BUT I really can't handle this with myself
 
If you have any comment please help for NEWIBE!
 
 
 
+ My budget is around $1500 and my musical taste is most of all genre especially pop(vocal), jazz fusion, and classic.
