Requesting Some Audio Advice Here? READ THIS FIRST!
Without knowing your music tastes and other needs (for example do you need a DAC, and what gear you are currently using), I would recommend a lower-end setup:
- Massdrop O2 + SDAC
- Schiit Modi
- JDS Labs stuff
(The Element, Atom amp, OL DAC, etc.)
If we are talking about desktop use, I would put preamp outputs as a mandatory feature for the amplifier. Plugging your speakers directly to the amp/DAC makes your life easier while also giving all the DAC benefits to the speakers too.
- Sennheiser HD58X
- Hifiman HE-4XX
- AKG K7XX
Personally I would go with HE4XX because they are planars (and I have the HE400 which they are based on). Planar is love, planar is life.
