Compressed to asphalt smoothness rap - very cool DAC - tube amp - low efficiency small bookshelf speaker ?So I'm looking to get a new PC speaker setup.
I currently have:
These aren't really near-field speakers but I could try to make them work (2-3 feet away from me).
- Focal Aria 906 speakers
- ADI-2 DAC fs
I really like the sound of tube amps. I was considering buying a willsenton R8 to pair with these speakers but since these will be my PC speakers (on 8+ hours everyday) I feel like I would burn through tubes too quickly.
My question is: if I buy a solid-state amp is there a way to use some kind of filter or plugin to make it sound like a tube amp? Since this will be connected to my PC>DAC>AMP>Focal speakers.
or, would it be better for me just to save these speakers for my living room and buy some cheaper PC speakers like Klipsch ProMedia Heritage 2.1 or some kind of bookshelf speakers with an internal amp.
I'll be listening to Rap and EDM on Spotify and YouTube videos. So the source quality won't be the best.
It is not prohibited.
