    RME Babyface Pro vs JDS Atom

    Will my Sennheiser HD600 sound better with the Topping D10+JDS Atom than with the RME Babyface Pro? I ask specifically about my headphones, not about some super-hard-to-drive planar-magnetic ones. And while I am already asking - will they sound even better with the THX 789+some dac? Story: I...
