I'm finally getting into the audiophile craze having joined the HD 6XX drop, but I'm not sure what I need for them given their 300 ohm impedance. Should I get an amplifier and DAC? Just an amplifier? Soundcard? Please help me make the right choice.
I'll be using them with my computer that has a crappy Intel motherboard (DH67CL). It has a bad USB bus or something because when I used USB headphones in the past, I could hear the signals from my mouse. What I'm left with is optical and standard 3.5mm jack.
Given that information, what recommendations are there for me for ways to get them set up? My budget is up to $120 since I don't have that much expendable cash and I want to use them when they arrive. Thanks for any help I receive!
