I think you can take a look at Schiit's entry product and the O2 dac/amp

Don't know if you want a desktop (AC power) or a portable (USB power).
If the latter, then this item is a steal: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/centrance-dacport-slim-amp-dac-combo?mode=guest_open
See reviews linked to on that page. Not currently available, likely will be soon. If interested, click the button requesting it.

What @Thousand1000 said. Check out the Magni/Modi combo from Schiit as well as the O2/ODAC combo (you can find it at several sites).

I'm interesting in that drop for a while but after I read the Spec of that item I felt like It's too hard to use for me.
I just need to plug-n-play because I don't know anything about audiophile item.
especially in term of setup menu, I don't know how to setup or use any function on this item.
only one thing i can use is volume control i guess.
I really like this item even mostly because of the massdrop logo on the item.
and should I still get this one? because i'm suck at audiophile item :( -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- for you guys i mean to this Item https://www.massdrop.com/buy/grace-design-x-massdrop-m9xx-dac-am
please tell me that if I'm totally suck at audiophile product should I get that one?
I never use any audiophile item before.

We all have to start somewhere man. Welcome to the expensive club lol
Anyways. You will be able to run these with your portable device as you can pretty much up to most headphones, that of course with the exception of higher ohm cans. Which then you would want an amp to use with those. That is just my opinion and from experience. However for a better listening experience. A dac/amp or amp will help contribute a lot.
You can read reviews all day until you are blue in the face but it all depends on what you like personally.
I have read the reviews on these and from what I am reading it seems are a very well rounded pair of vans that are worth your time. Especially at the price point.
The cool thing is that you can also mod these if you want. Starting with the easiest way to do so and that is with the earpads. That can change the audio in ways that was better for me personally since I have tinnitus in both ears.
That's just a personally opinion though I think if you have the money for these. Get them. Great start in the hifi community
Again all of this is my personal opinion and only from my experience

If you can afford it get the m9xx now. If not, you can do that upgrade later if you still want to upgrade, but the headphones themselves won't be rendered useless just because you don't have something like the m9xx.

Zdac no brainer at $279 b-stock free shipping :) I had many DAC's up to $2000 and zdac is so far best value by far.
