So I have a pair of beyerdynamic dt 990 pro 250 ohm head phones or I will monday when UPS delivers them. I currently have onboard audio which will not do at all for these headphones at least I have been told this. I tend to get obsessed with quality and i am afraid I may end up upgrading to bigger stronger head phones in the future but for now I am worried about getting a decent dac and amp to pair with these phones. I use primarily on the computer so I was thinking the stx is a dac and amp in one Can i do better than the STX for $200 dac and amp? Is the fiio E17 in the same leauge as the stx or is its only advantage portability?
