I have a pair of Sennheiser 58x Jubilees and was looking around for an amp/dac combo so i can increase the quality of my spotify premium and my flac files.
Here’s the thing, I need something cheap. How cheap? Like 120 or less, somewhere around there. I think i need portable, because I listen a lot on my phone, but also on my macbook. I listen more on my laptop when I am home doing homework, but on my phone is usually better because i can move it around so it doesn’t get in the way.
I had a few issues, should i go with a standalone amp and a dac? or should I get a combo?
The one i have been wanting to get is the Fiio Q1 Mk 2, because Zeos praised it to all heaven, and it can easily be used for desktop, but I don’t know if there is anything better.
My reasoning for not wanting separate dac and amps is because i can run the 58x fine, anything louder would be uncomfortable, so what I need more is a dac, and if i can save money gettin g a 2-in-1 i will.
All of this sounds confusing, but all i am asking for is some recommendations, portable or not portable, for something around 120 or less.
Thanks in advance
