You can put it on your head, and since the tubes emit light, it would make a great headpiece for raving.

If you're being serious, no.

An amp takes your source, amplifies it, and improves the sound at the same time.

A DAC (digital-analog converter) converts a digital signal (music from a computer, CD player, mp3 player, etc.) and converts it to an analog signal which is what headphones and speakers use.

A sound card is a DAC.

I am being serious I dont know anything about this subject sorry. So it improves the sound quality but is that not a speaker problem? If you want better sound you get better speakers right?

An amp is equally important as a speaker.

With the right source, amp, and EQ, you can make ****ty speakers sound good.

While the quality of speakers and headphones do matter to a degree, I think your source is more important. If the quality of your source sucks, your speakers/headphones will show it. If you amp a bad source, the source is going to sound even worst.

You can put a bow-tie on poop, but it's still poop.

Very nice! I especially like the tripod concept, allthough I'd personally make the feet a little less tall.

What schematic will you be using?
