I’m looking to buy an amp for my Beyerdynamic DT880s. I have been using them with only my motherboard’s audio (Asus Maximus VIII Hero) after being told it should be enough here on the forum.
However I think it could be better with some dedicated gear.
What amp or ideally amp/dac combo would you guys recommend as being adequate for getting full potential out of my headphones? I am a complete noob in this regard so any description / aditional info will be welcomed. Also, I am based in EU (market here kinda different from US).
I’d like to not spend a fortune on it. It would be nice if it’s not more expensive than the headphones themself…
Well, the K5 Pro is available here, but it does cost about 300$ with tax, so it doesn’t really fit in my budget.
Do you think that lower tier amps would be enough? I currently have higher tier onboard audio so I don’t know if buying some 100$-ish amp would help at all. (for example FiiO E10k)
Those are some nice DAC/AMPs, but they are well over my budget. Aren’t they a bit of an overkill for my cans and (even is not) will some cheaper ones still do the job better than my onboard (ROG Maximus VIII Hero)?
