Just ordered my HD 6xx's and have been researching AMP/DACs to pair it with. Very new to the headphone world, previously owned HD280 Pro and currently own MDR 7506s.
Needless to say, I have settled on this AMP/DAC pair
AMP - Massdrop THX AAA 789
DAC - SMSL SU-8 Version 2
Will I need balanced XLR cables? Any recommendations? Will I need other cords? Is this a good AMP/DAC to pair with HD 6xx's. Just looking for a decent setup for a $500 budget
