Recommendations for new DAC/Amp's

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am looking at getting a new DAC and AMP to replace my Asus ThunderFX, as well as a portable one (needs both a DAC and headphone amp in one) to help my laptop's TERRIBLE sound quality.

My desktop audio setup:
Asus ThunderFX
Klipsch Promedia 2.1
Breakaway Live (got a key from a friend, never would pay that much for a program)
Klipsch Image One (first revision)

I have currently spent only $150 on my whole audio setup, so I don't see me replacing my speakers or headphones any time soon.

I will be using my Image Ones as the primary audio device for my laptop.

For my desktop, I will do a lot of gaming, but the most important thing is music sound quality. I also watch a lot of TV shows and movies. All aspects are important. I like clear and balanced sound with a bit of extra bass, and a warm quality. My budget is about $100 and the cheaper the better. I would much prefer an external DAC but a sound card would suffice. I would prefer one that would fit my build though (black/silver/green) or at least stay hidden.

I will be doing mostly music and movies/TV shows from my laptop. My budget is $30-40 bucks.

I have looked at the suggestions thread and I'm not finding anything that really fits the bill for me. I do not mind buying used or refurbed. I very much like Newegg, Amazon, Ebay...

Thanks for the help!

So the issue is that you need a dac AND amp. A dac alone is not a great idea.

That being the case, I would recommend to looked at used gear.

I found this one for 100 bucks, and you can probably push him a bit lower http://www.head-fi.org/t/671251/audioengine-d1-usb-dac-headphone-amp

Yeah I guess. I'll need to output to speakers and headphones for the desktop one, both auxiliary (I would like the one for my desktop to be bigger) and just headphones from the Laptop one.

It's in the OP, Klipsch Promedia 2.1

I shouldn't've said power them, I just meant output to them.

Well it seems that a bigger budget is needed to improve sound on my desktop noticeably, but the Fiio E7 would work awesomely for my laptop. So I'll be getting a used one next week.

See I am thinking a simple asus STX will do you just fine. The audio engine D1 also has RCA out, so again you should be good there as well.
