Hey guys! I am new to this platform. I'll keep it simple. I transitioned into using good headphones about 2 years ago ( Audio Technica M50X). I used mostly in-ear headphones prior to switching to over the ears (sennheiser, klipsch; 10-20 USD ones). I truly enjoy the depth and minute details in the music that keeps me going. I come across DACs and AMPS when using headphones in articles and I don't truly understand it. Is it something that sound engineers use, or its the next step in elevating and introducing myself into a different world of music appreciation.
I also understand the bit rate makes a huge difference, but to what extend streaming music(spotify prem) varies from, CD for example?
Questions may sound too simple for some of you all over here, but for a newbie I could use some hints/pointers/guide.
For those who take their time to give me an idea, truly appreciate it.
Stay safe out there fellas! Cheers.
