Hi all, first message on this forum. Happy with my hifi equipment, now I want to push further for better headphone system - but maybe also pre-amp and DAC. Current setup: Computer (Mac or PC): ALAC lossless files USB cable: Wireworld Silver Starlight DAC: Cambridge Audio DacMagic XLR cables: Cairn XLR Integrated amp: Cairn 4808A (30W class A) Headphone: Sennheiser HD600 plugged on amp (Speakers: B&W 804) Now I'm looking seriously at Sennheiser HD700 and HD800. What I'm looking for is a more streamlined chain between computer and headphone first. For example there's that new Oppo HA-1: it's a DAC and a headphone amp. Wouldn't it be appropriate for me, or will I miss another element? Computer > HA-1 > HD700/HD800 Also, would the HA-1 DAC, despite being aimed at headphones, be a better DAC to be used with my speakers ? Computer > HA-1 > Cairn 4808A int amp > B&W 804 I'm really looking to good overall balance, thank you all for your advices.
