DAC for HD650: Mytek DSD vs Lynx Hilo

I am looking for a DAC to use with a Sennheiser HD 650. I narrowed it to the Mytek DSD and the Lynx Hilo.

- Which one of the two has a better headphone amplifier?
- What about the sinergy between these units and the HD650?

Thanks.

I have 2 Myteks in here and use them with HD650/800 and LCD-3 headphones. It has enough gain for just about anything but Stax and sound absolutely great.

Did you know th Mytek 8x192 has an ADC upgrade for $400 on the capacitors and is well worth it end-users are saying!

I plan on getting the Mytek 8x192 in the near future and getting the upgrade as well.

Hilo headphone amp is not impressive. I've owned one for several years. I much prefer the headphone output on an Alesis Masterlink...haha
