Headphone Amp?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
ok guys, I have the titanium HD, a pair of HA-RX700 (felt mod), and a pair of HA-RX900's on the way. I have been looking at the Little Dot Mk III all day but am not sure given my sound card and cans I have if it would be worth it. Please advise!

Its not so much your sound card as it is your headphones. Upgrading to a higher end soundcard or DAC would be beneficial, its simply that you are looking to invest in some rather low end headphones that really dont need an amp to be driven properly. Honestly I use Little Dot amps and love them (though I personally didnt see much of an improvement from MKIII over MKII). Realistically you should perhaps cancel your rx900s and invest in some midfi headphones.

Would A700's gain anything from an MKIII?

64 ohm impedance? You probably will notice a small improvement particularly in the low end. But I would save my money and upgrade the headphones first.
