Dac/Amp for HD-6XX?

more_vert
Hello guys and girls, I am searching for a new dac/amp for my 6XXs. I already have one, the FiiO K5 PRO. For the price of a new one, Is it worth getting a better dac/amp?

A adore my Drop CTH + SDAC. It's an all in one with a tube that sounds incredible. I mean, the 6XXs sound incredible on almost anything. I used a Dragonfly Red for a long time and loved it—still use it for portability—but the difference between that and the CTH + SDAC is incredible. If you don't want to invest in a balanced setup (and I can tell you do not), I would seriously consider the Alex Cavalli Cathode Tube Hybrid + Grace SDAC combo. You will not be disappointed. Ever. In fact, I think the combination of such an amp with 6XXs can compete on a level with combinations that cost 10X as much, easy.

It’s only needed if you want specific connection options such as Bluetooth or XLR input. As long as it works and you’re not getting distortion when plugging in your devices. If you’re looking for sound quality improvement, you won’t be able to tell the difference. Your music source determines a lot more than these hardware.

Yeah, definitely going from a portable hybrid amp to a desktop amp will be a difference in power.

My father has a k5 pro. The xduoo and the pro put out about the same power. So if its an upgrade for the xduoo I would say its an upgrade for the k5
