Just some background please skip past if you'd like its not necessary:
Well like many have warned I find myself vested in audio gear and knowledge that months ago I didn't care at all for. Initially I broke a bluetooth communicator between comp and a shitty gaming logitech headphone and was trying to replace it when I realized the piece cost as much as a new pair of the same headphones with that very piece. So I began reading around and found my way to the Sennheiser HD 6xx touted the best pair of headphones under $1000 so I had some cash and bought them not realizing there was so much more. Eventually after starting down the audiophile path like many I found my way to Schiits website and bought myself a magni 3.
So my questions now to all you lovely folk is:
1: Should I invest in a modi 2 Uber as my DAC (or do I really need one?) Im running off a Macbook Pro at times and other my desktop which I built and probably only has a shitty onboard card ... *flashback to me sitting at computer* "Sound card? What do I need a heckin sound card for. Naw" so maybe just make the Macbook stationary I hear they have decent dacs as is?
2: How did everyone start collecting Flac files ? Currently im streaming off spotify student which streams 320kbit/s. Is that enough if I choose to go no DAC route or is that just going to amplify the fact that it is not lossless (sorry I still lack a lot of terminology).
Not sure if this is useful information but my music taste in pretty all inclusive. So I don't lean toward any genre I know some are definately more technical than others so im sure some things should be lossless for full appreciation but for others can I get by? Damn the questioning oneself really never ends
