Amp for PC gamer rig
more_vert
Looking for a DAC/AMP combo to BD DT 990 Pro cans (250 ohm version) and condenser mic for my son. Needs are 1) Phantom Power (for mic) and amp with enough power to properly run the DT 990 Pro's at 250 ohm's. Now I was going to order a Schiit Fulla 3 or Hel but realized they don't support phantom power. I was looking also at the Focusrite Scarlet Solo and 2i2 (great mic pre with phantom power) but I can't find any information about its headphone amp quality, if it can adequately power the DT 990's. I few stated that the headphone amp might not be up to par. Any other suggestions out there please? Very respectfully, Eric

I would get the SSL 2 interface as it has better preamps and the headphone amp has more power than my Apollo X6

Thinking to go with the Focusrite Scarlet Solo (with phantom power) for the AT2020 mic, and then use a Shiit Magni headphone amp to drive the 990 Pro's to their fullest (if after testing the Solo we decide the built in amp is not good enough). Both can be had from the manufactures websites refurb/B-stock to save a few $'s. Again, I know this is not strictly music audio, but for my 11 year old son, it's just as important for his gaming. I appreciate this community greatly. Have a peaceful w/end all.
