Meridian Explorer USB DAC & headphone amp

My System:


IMac 27-inch, Late 2012 (new slim version)


Bowers & Wilkins MM1 desktop speakers


Headphones: Grado GS 1000 & Bose Noise cancelling phones I’m very interested in the Meridian Explorer USB DAC & headphone amp.


My query is, will it be suitable for the above-mentioned system, in particular the (very expensive) Grado GS 1000’s?


I do occasionally use the headphone socket on the Bowers & Wilkins MM1 desktop speakers; it has a built in DAC too, but find it doesn’t measure up to the GRADO’s so the Meridian explorer MUST outperform that


I would appreciate your honesty and if you don’t think the Explorer will be a significant upgrade, what other device would you suggest?


Kind regards
