Well in case anyone was wondering this setup is everything I was hoping it to be and would recommend the K5 Pro to anyone looking to get a 6xx. Now i've started going down the rabbit hole and ordered a Audeze LCD-2 ... hopefully the K5 Pro will be able to handle it. Although it's low impedance it's apparently power hungry.

The k5 pro has a surprising amount of power you should bw fine for the most part

No mention of electrostats? Drop x Koss ESP/95X has much more "analyticallness" than an of the headphones mentioned. And if one has the money, Stax does exist... Although if they to be included, one must mention that they require energizers to operate.

PC: 6700k, r9 Nano

Cans: Stax SR-009s (Woo Audio 3ES+, Schiit Yggdrasil), Sony MDR-7506, oratory1990 autoEQ

Spkrs: Linkwitz Labs LX521.4 (miniDSP 4x10HD, ATI AT528NC), SoundLabs A-1 with rotary sub (Schiit Yggdrasil, ATI AT528NC, rotary sub has own amp)

Mic: Manley Reference Black (preamp included) -> GoXLR (asio hacky output to cans and spkrs)

Will be getting Eve Spectrum Model 2 (1440p 240hz), upgrading cpu and gpu, def getting silverstone alta f1

I'll be getting a pair of Audeze LCD-2's soon, I have a maximus ranger vi for onboard audio.

Do you think I'll need a amp and or dac? Might be a bit silly for me to get these headphones and not get as good of an experience as I can for them.

If so could you recommend something for me to get, I live in the UK btw


Thanks :D

You'll need it. You can go with Schiit's Asgard 3 and Modius. That will run you down USD400 + shipping and taxes. As a heads up, you might want to check out Audeze Plugin that auto tunes their cans for you. Out of the box the sound can be described as a bit wonky by some (me included).
