I got a small portable fiio k1 amp/dac for my PC because my sound on my motherboard is fried and this was a way around it.
But the k1 wouldn't really be suitable for the HD6xx, so would this setup work, (note I know very little on audio so this may be a stupid question)
PC/phone/source > fiio k1 > tube amp or some other type of amp that does not have a built in dac > HD6xx
the reason I'm wondering is because the k1 is an amp+dac combo, would it mess up having an amp plugged into it.
Short answer you should be fine long answer to why: The hd650/6xx can be powered straight from the phone, from my research. This seened to be the case in many Reddit posts, but also on an Ltt video reviewing the hd6xx saying it surpasses many headphones of that price range without the need of a Amp. of course they won't sound as great without an amp but from this most amp should be able to drive this without a problem.
