£500 budget for headphone rig, how would you spend it?
I need a decent 'phone rig for my office (the cans will also be used direct from my iPhone when traveling if they can be used unamped but this is not a high priority). The source will either be my computer or my iPhone.
I am looking at closed cans as it is quite a busy environment.
If you had a £500 budget, assuming that you already have a computer/ipod as source, what is the best rig for the money at this level?
What I cant decide is whether to go for separate DAC, amp and phones, or combined DAC and amp, or leave the DAC for now and just get a better amp and phones.
I am not looking at portable amps (although the iBasso D10 is at an interesting price/function point as it would leave me enough for Denon D2000 phones, my current top choice) as the amp will live on my desk.
Anyway, how would you spend it?
