Until I can commit to my first set of seperates, I am considering various approaches. What are peoples thoughts on hooking up an Audiolab CDQ and a set of AKG K701 headphoes. The Audiolab CDQ has a pre-amp and Class A headphone amplifier inbuilt, so I was looking to get this as a start.. This should cost me @£1100 which is do-able. I then have two nice pieces of kit for which to add on to once I have the cash. I have considered getting a full set of seperates for £1-1.5k but I quite fancy the idea of something a bit better, even though I won't have speakers and a power amp. Also, would the AKGs match the Audiolab? I was looking at some Grado's but I must admit that I like the look of the AKGs
Any advice on this idea would be much appreciated.
