I just picked up a pair of AKG K712 Pro’s for £75 as an upgrade to my Superlux HD668b (mostly used for gaming, both competitive and casual, and music listening). I had been running my 668b off of either my motherboard audio or an ES100, but I don’t think that’ll be good enough for the K712.
What do people recommend for a reasonable price (in the UK)? I’ve been looking at the Fiio K5 Pro (£150), Topping DX3 (£190) (although that’s harder to get here), and maybe the Schiit Modi/Magni (£125+£115), although that is the absolute most I can spend. There is also the Element 2 here for £299, but I can’t really justify that honestly.
Whatever I choose will be plugged into my pc motherboard, which is the x570 Aorus Master, which I’m pretty sure has sdpif out. Not sure if the inbuilt DAC/amp is any good (almost definitely not)
Any advice/help is greatly appreciated, as I gotta make a decision quickly before stock and time runs out!
