Recently my Shure SRH-940 broke and I’ve started to look up some new headphones to mix and master with in my home studio.
I’ve decided to go with the AKG k702 but I saw that a lot of people said they need a good amplifier with them to really use them to they’re full potential.
So I started to look up some amps and then i saw that they need a DAC to connect to my PC which i’m using to make music, and some people said just upgrade your audio interface instead of investing in an amp and a DAC.
i saw somewhere that I need to have a mixer to connect the amp and audio interface, so i got lost and i don’t know what i need to get and how i need to connect everything.
Do i need only the amplifier and should i try to connect it to my audio interface?
Should i get an amplifier and a DAC as well?
Does the amplifier and DAC replace my audio interface or should i get all three of them together?
Do i need a mixer to connect everything to my Audio interface?
I’m using the Steinberg UR22.
I’m really lost here and i would appreciate some guidance with explaining those fundamental things before i make such a big purchase.
thanks in advance and sorry for my English.
