This is will be my first tube amp purchase and hopefully it can fully power my headphones. I have the planar m1060s, akg k7xx and fostex ph. I didnt go with the hd6xx because its a lot harder to drive and my m1060s knock out of the ball park.
I dont have a desktop only a 2010 Asus rog with decent sound card with 1 3.5mm aux jack. Anyone can recommend me a nice DAC to pair up with cavali tube amp?
This amp will drive all the headphones you mentioned without a problem. Really any DAC will work, so it's up to you how much you want to spend :)
Only thing I'd watch with the DAC is the max output voltage, this amp has a lot of gain so I'd tend to avoid anything with output voltage above the standard 2.0/2.1v range, and if you end up choosing a portable/USB powered DAC with lower output voltage that might not be a bad thing.
Thanks for your input, ill watch out for the dac output. :) i dont know if its worth buying a dac since I have a 8 yr old laptop. Lol
