After doing tons of research online, I've finished my office setup :) I love the comfort and clear and bright highs/warm mids of the Sennheiser HD 598 Cs. The FiiO is a great DAC/Amp that works plugged into my computer or iPhone (for when the work internet isn't playing along). I have a Tidal Hifi membership, so I play FLAC and MQA music streaming directly to the DAC. I recently got the silver plated Ablet 2.5mm TRRS balanced cable, and it made the headphones sound great! I love listening to Grateful Dead live albums all day long, zero fatigue, just pure audio enjoyment.

@LuckyLuke575 You don't feel that money would be better spent by buying Hi-Res music from HDTracks.com or NativeDSD.com? Spending $20+ a month on Tidal you could buy a new album every month. Then you could take it with you anywhere and play it anywhere and wouldn't be limited by device or wifi connection strength. That's how I ended up feeling and I dumped all those streaming services. We don't even use Netflix or Hulu anymore.... lol. I mainly watch Youtube and Twitch anyway....

I've definitely thought about going the buying music route, especially because the FiiO can process DSD and high res PCM files. But I've decided that getting my music from Tidal is the best option for the following reasons (just my own thoughts, not saying that this is the best way or valid for everyone):
  • Storing high quality files needs a lot of disk space (esp. DSD), and then I still need to replicate the music files across the different devices that I use
  • The streaming service makes a massive catalog of music available, which allows me to discover and listen to new bands and albums
  • I listen to at least 30 different albums on rotation, while discovering new albums weekly, so there would be a large upfront and ongoing cost of purchase (I see the EUR 20 per month as fairly pricey but also great value)
  • Tidal allows for FLAC and MQA albums to be downloaded to my 256 GB iPhone, so I can listen to music on the go without having to stream. I have a very high speed and uncapped internet connection at home, so that's not an issue. The office wifi is sometimes a problem, but I have my phone as a back up there
  • The Tidal player has settings that allow direct data streaming and MQA passthrough to the DAC, which bypasses the Windows audio decoding layers / settings
  • I had a large music library in the iTunes / Mp3 days, and it was a huge hassle to manage, and an experience that I don't want to relive
  • Digital music quality is a whole discussion on its own, but for my purposes, I've decided that I'm happy with FLAC 44.1 kHz/16 bit, and MQA (96kHz/24 bit as I understand it) when available
  • I like the consistent user interface across all my devices
  • I like being able to click an info button and read a review / description of the album that I'm listening to (the backstory)
I agree on your point about Netflix and other video streaming services. I cancelled my subscription to Netflix, but only because I spend so much time listening to music that I ended up never watching any TV! haha
