I too, think of myself as casual audiophile. I don't listen to lossless file either, I can't hear the differences between lossy and lossless. I did get some DAC/Amp to get cleaner signal, but differences in DAC is very subtle, so I don't bother to spent a fortune on that part. I also think cable don't have audible improvement, but I'm happy to spend a bit for aesthetic and other reasons. I spent most on getting a different headphones instead, the characteristic of each headphone can be very interesting to observe. :)
I feel the same way, I think the headphones themselves make 90% of the impact. Can't wait for my Purpleheart's to arrive, it'll be the first time I have two sets of headphones at the same time!
Sharing the same thought!
