Doesn’t hurt that Schiit’s chief digital designer (for the DACs) is named Mike Moffat. Similar name as the OP, haha! They just upgraded their Modi DAC, but I haven’t heard it yet.
@Hayden_Moffett Even if you “have the money“ (what is your budget?), there’s a bit of a learning curve in figuring out what kind of house sound you prefer or other feature that would be meaningful to you. While some (many) would recommend a Schiit stack of separates, I might recommend a Sennheiser GSX 1000, and someone else might recommend an iFi iDSD Micro Black Label, a Shanling M3s, or a Bottlehead. I just recommended (in order) a desktop system of separates, a computer “sound processor” which will occasionally fool you into thinking your surround speakers are on, a battery-powered “transportable” system that you can’t really use in your pocket on the go but sounds really good at the office or by the bedside, an “on the go” portable music player that can free up your phone or connect to all your other stuff, and a tube amp that might appeal to a fascination for electronics or nostalgia. All good options worth looking into if they are interesting, btw.
Personally, I think of a flagship smartphone as the average person’s baseline, and make suggestions from there. Most DACs at or under $100 barely distinguish themselves from what is built-into a smartphone, so a lower budget/getting started is best off focusing on an amp first. Maybe get an iDSD or Chord DAC product to add to that later. Also, consider where you’ll have the opportunity to listen: by the home computer, at the office, while exercising or commuting, at the home theater, in bed? I would say I listen by my computer in my home office the most, and so I’ve built my system around that.
With the HD 58X Jubilee, I assume your environment will be similar (though I have worn my HD 650 on planes and busses, and to my surprise when asking other passengers they said they really didn’t mind the slight leakage). So, something a bit more capable, ok to be larger as long as it doesn’t take up too much desk space, would be ideal. I grew up listening to my dad’s stereo speakers, also I like surround sound. So my Sennheiser GSX 1000, with it’s binaural processing, is what I value most on my desk along with my headphones (and work essentials). It has plenty of juice for the HD 58X Jubilee. If you don’t care about getting the soundstage outside of your head, maybe pick up a nice amp that intrigues you within your budget, first. I also frequently use my Sennheiser HD 820 DAC/Amp combo... it can power all my headphones, connect to my Mac (USB), PC (USB> GSX 3.5mm> RCA input to the HDV 820), and PS4 (Optical) easily and switch inputs, and it’s physically big but just big enough to fit a sheet of paper on top of in case I’m typing something or whatever. That’s a fairly expensive option... but the idea is something versatile and high quality, so you don’t buy twice. Schiit (maybe Asgard 2), Bottlehead (Crack), Cavalli Audio, Chord, Meier Audio, Audio GD... these are all good brands that you won’t go wrong to choose, and there are many more.
