    DAC/AMP for DT-770 250 Ohm

    Hello, I am having a hard time choosing the most adequate DAC/AMP combo for my DT-770 Pro 250 Ohm. My budget is around 200€ but I'm willing to stretch it up to 250-300€ if it's worth the price. Currently, I have looked at a bunch of different combos, including the Topping L30 II/E30 II stack...

    Worth upgrading from Fiio K5 Pro (RCA) to a balanced DAC for more than 1 reason.

    Current combo : Kali Audio LP6 + FiiO K5 Pro connected with RCA. I am happy with the combo, was wondering if upgrading to a balanced DAC/xlr will be worth it? Reasons: Want to try XLR cables (hoping for better audio) + K5 Pro has a weird problem: It does not mute the monitors if I connect...

    What's the best amp/DAC for akg-712 pro?

    I have akg-712 pro with Fiio K5 Pro and I love them but I wonder is it worth to upgrade the amp/DAC? My budget is around 300-500 usd. Those are my first headphones and maybe it's better to save more for another pair of headphones with different sound signature?

    First DAC/amp setup

    Hi all! I'm in the process of building my first audiophile setup and getting a bit confused/overwhelmed with all the information out there. I have pretty much decided on buying the Sivga SV021's for my headphones. Now I am trying to find a DAC/amp setup to pair with it. I would like to get...

    Fiio K5 Pro and AKG 712 Pro

    Hi people! Does the Fiio K5 Pro have enough power to properly power the AKG K712 Pro headphones to their full potential? I already have K5 Pro, and I'm on the fence about buying AKG K712 Pro. Are the 712s really this power-hungry? Anybody with this combo? :)

    Fiio K5 Pro or Drop O2 + SDAC

    I live in the EU and ordered the O2 + SDAC but now see that it only has a US plug and the EU plug will either be $16+$26 shipping, or $23 in an EU store. For this price it will be around the same as the Fiio K5 Pro. I see that the Fiio has a stronger Amp but want to know if the Amp is better...
