What's your budget?
I use a Grace m903 normally, but that is around the £2k mark.
At an affordable price I use the Audioquest DragonFly
These are USB DAC headphone amplifiers and are excellent - they are good enough to power top end headphones well, like my HD 800. :thumbup:
I use the new "Cobalt", recently upgrading from the "Red". Both are excellent, the Cobalt is better and about £100 more. The "Black" is the budget option, but still very good.
I use mine with a short USB adaptor cable so as not to accidently strain the USB connector should the headphone cable be tugged.
The bonus is that they will also work with smartphones and iPads. :thumbup:
