Thanks, @arafiq. The RME was definitely on my list. I went for the Brooklyn Bridge for now due to the extra functionality that will come in handy. I have 60 days to try it with music direct. I hear they are coming out with a newer version in July ...

Went with ordering the LCD-2Classic. Excited to get them.What do you think of the Mytek Brooklyn Dac or Brooklyn Bridge? I need the headphone amp and a DAC so thought they may be good together.

Thanks, @arafiq and @umn The one drawback I've heard about the Audeze is the weight. Did you find that an issue? I've heard good things about the LCD classic.What do you guys use for desktop DAC?

What do you all hear about the Pro-Ject Pre Box S2 as far as headphone amp and DAC go? 
Newbie HiFi Headphone & Amp pairing suggestions
Appreciate that, soix,. Doesn’t look like the RME plays MQA files either. I’ve also been looking at the Mytek Brooklyn Bridge but looks like there’s a new one coming out in June that is a Roon core as well. Too many options.

What do you guys hear about the RME ADI DAC 2 FS for the combo headphone amp and DAC? I think Darko has this on his setup as well.That with the Audeze LCD-X may be the ticket.https://www.amazon.com/dp/B081CWQXGD/?tag=headphonesty0420-20#customerRe...

Thanks, soix as well. Appreciate the insights on the Arya's! I'll check out that review of the amp as well.

Thanks! I tend to like a warmer, fuller sound but I'm still new to figuring out what all of the different sound signatures mean. But sounds like I may be drawn to the Audeze and HiFiman more with that in mind.I'd love to find an all in one amp/DAC...

I should mention that this is all really for my home office desk setup. So can't fit mega huge gear on this desk. Appreciate any recos! 
Integrated Amp Question for a Newbie to the Forum
Hi Everyone, I wanted to say thanks for all the great advice here. After a lot of research, reviews and talking to several gear shops, I wound up going with the Hegel H390 after all as well as the Bluesound Node 2i. Just installed everything last ...

Where can I find those? 
Integrated Amp Question for a Newbie to the Forum
Thanks, yyzsantabarbara. Good to know you're a fan of the 585 too. Seems like Class A amps put out a bit more power and may sound a bit warmer. Overgeneralization? On another note, I'm curious what you all think are the quality music streamers out... 
Integrated Amp Question for a Newbie to the Forum
Ah great advice. I do like the MA’s. Sounds like the new Silvers or Gold would be a worthwhile upgrade. As far as neutral goes, do you find that’s a desirable sound profile? I’m just getting into the differences between neutral, warm and bright. C...
