So I recently purchased my Sennheiser HD58x Jubilee’s but have yet to purchase a dac or amp or anything like that yet. I have a laptop and Spotify on “very high” quality music, but I want to start building my music collection now.
I just recently purchased the Interstellar Soundtrack and I am going to rip the songs onto my computer for high quality music like that. I have a few questions regarding this.
- is this the only way to reliably get high quality music?
- are free FLAC files worth it/reliable (if so where can I find a good source for free)
- can I hear the difference without a dac or an amp
I want to put my new headphones to good use, and I know Spotify does not do them justice due to the nature of streaming music, and I want to start listening to high quality music but I don’t really know how. I appreciate all feedback
