What is the best amp/dac combo and speaker to pair with the k702?
more_vert
So im using the k702 for gaming and listening to music, I've been told that the schiit modi and magni are the best combo for 200$. While the other people told me to get JDS Lab atom and JDS OL Dac. My budget is 220 for the dac/amp and the budget is also 220 for the speakers. I'm thinking of getting the JDS LSR 305 for the speakers. What are good speakers and amp/dac combos that are good in the 220 range?

What's your source? You may not need to worry about a DAC right away. It sounds like what you're looking for is an integrated amplifier, you could blow the entire amp budget on something like the Emotiva BassX A-100 at $240, if you have a clean source. Or go to something like the $150 Topping MX3 on the cheaper side that also has DAC. I know the Elac Debut B5 are very well regarded...not sure how well the B6 stacks up, as are the Klipsch R-15M, and the Fluance Signature Series. The JBL's you mentioned are powered, and would require an amplifier with pre amp capability, like the Liquid Spark, or Magni 3 in order to control the volume. Also the 305P's are going to run you close to $250 for the pair.
