Hello everyone. So the situation is as follows: I plan to get into higher quality music experience and I want to start my journey by buying a bundle of HiFiMan Sundara and iFi Zen DAC v2 OR Sundara + Zen CAN. Eventually I want to have the Zen stack, but for now I have to choose which one I get first. So my questions are:
- Will this DAC alone, without an amp or buying the additional iFi power source for it (only being run from usb) be enough to drive this headphones?
- Is it better to go for Sundara + iFi ZEN CAN combo and run the ZEN CAN from my pc/ macbook pro?
- If I go with the ZEN DAC v2, is it a noticeable difference going with a balanced connection?
Thanks a lot in advance to everyone helping me.
Ideal I would’ve gone for Schiit stack, but its not available in my region of Europe and I have access only to iFi.
