The FiiO E10 is a USB DAC/amp combo, and yes I have the device set to high gain.
By no means is the E10 lacking in volume, but some small details/vocals in songs that I've noticed before from other headphones are rather lacking and unpronounced with the HD600s.
I've spoken to multiple people and researched about this and they've pretty much reached a consensus on the E10 being suitable for lower impedance headphones. I'm going to head down to the Headfoneshop in the next week or two to audition some amps/DACs. Charles (the owner) is a pretty cool guy to talk to if you're looking to buy locally.
And I'm going to have to refuse your offer
, my next big buy will probably be my last (law of diminishing returns man).
Not to mention I was browsing some headphone pages on FB and apparently a student at mac has LCD-3's O:
