Some audio advice please :).

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Apologies for having this in another section of the forum to (if anyone even cares ) but I put the last one in the wrong section really.

Anyway... I will be the first to admit I'm not really all that clued up about audio, so I'm after a bit of advice if some of you fine people wouldn't mind helping.

I currently own an Asus Xonar D2X which powers a decent set of bookshelf monitors, as well as a small headphone amp I was gifted a fair while ago, a C&C Box+, which grabs its line from the motherboard audio and drives some Shure SRH840s.

My question is this... with this setup, how would you go about improving it? My first thought was a nice DAC for the headphones, but I'm really quite clueless at the moment and I though I would ask for some advice here to get me started before I start trawling the web looking for information.

I am relatively happy with the Asus powering my M-Audio AV40s, I don't need more than that, but I wish for more from my headphones.

Thanks!
