This is all new to me. Which amp should I get to power the 6xx and the 58x.Some kind of universal amp that works with everything. I am willing to pay up to 150$. I prefer a Amp/dac all in one. Also should I get a dac or is it not necessary? Thanks

The 58x shouldn't need an amp so if your using that as you daily driver you should be ok without one

for 150 you are going to have a hard time getting a DAC and AMP that are good for the hd6xx. There are some good DAPS at that price range but they won't have the drive the hd6xx needs. Please note the 58X is easier to drive. Regardless I would recommend the Magni 3 as an amp and the Vali 2 if you want to go for the tube sound (which is great for the 6xx). Will be good either way. As for the DAC and yes I'd recommend a DAC at all costs you could get a Modi 2 or an ODAC.

Don't listen to anyone who tells you that you don't need an amp or a DAC. You do have more options than with the 6xx. You have a lot of time to do research, but those MD branded amp/dacs are winners for the price.

If you want the best sound quality possible you want to get an amp and dac. The Schiit Fulla 2 is a great sounding unit that is an amp and dac if you don't want to spend more than $150. It will drive the HD58x very very well. The next upgrade would've been the Aune x1s anni edition which just ended. Beyond that everything starts getting pricy.

Modi 2 and 2U have the same AK4490 chip as the Fulla 2, you'd need to get a Modi Multibit to consider it an upgrade on the DAC end, the Magni 3 ampwill give you all the power you'll ever need to drive any headphone. Its a great solid state amp for the price. So if you really need power, the Modi2/Magni3 will be a good combo and you can literally stop there and never have to worry about the Amp and DAC ever again.

Which amp/dac combo should I get? Budget of 200$ max. Should I opt for the Magni Modi 3, Fulla 2 or the O2 Odac?

Don't know much about the O2 Odac, but supposedly it suffers from issues that most recommend to stay away from it. Magni 3/Modi2 if you got the budget as its probably the best entry level desktop amp/dac under $200, you'll get better volume control and amplification over the Fulla 2.

You've got 5 months to build that Bottlehead Crack that you really want. In the meantime you can also also pick up that MD x Grace adac. :) what ever combo you do wind up with, don't stress it too much, because it won't be your last.

What are the issues with the O2? I have a couple of them at home and I don’t see any issues about them. They are very good budget amps, just like the Schiit Magni amp. One may have an advantage over the other on a certain aspect, that doesn’t mean there are issues related to them.
