I've been given the hd660s and they sound really low with my onboard audio. I want to get a something to amp them up, so I was thinking of pairing it with a magni/modi schiit stack. I was wondering if this was a good pairing, if not what you recommend for about the same price point?

You only need an amp if the sound coming from your motherboard is fine

Just get the magni or the atom amp.

PM or DM me if you have any questions about audio or about your PC.

I would grab a topping d10 or a e30 amp wise the magni3+ or the schiit heresy both present pretty great value

Ok, so the sound from the motherboard is clean I hear no distortion or hissing it just to low. I'll be getting the magni3+ and I'll run it like that if I hear anything wrong with the audio I'll be going the one of the two dacs provided by rice guru. Thank you both for the help.
