    Answer: 
    The answer really depends, simply put something like a Fiio E17 will drive it very nice, and the E17 is a DAC and Amp, although I would recommend you get something like a Jds Labs oDac and a Garage 1217 Hybrid Tube Amp, as the AD900X would really sound magical with a hybrid tube!

    Answer: 
    We do not typically make recommendations for these. Personally, I have heard good things about the Audioengine D1 D/A Converter. needledoctor.com is a good source for a DAC + Amplifier.

    Will W5000 Earpads fit on the AD900X?

    I'm looking to replace the earpads on the AD900X as I am much more comfortable with the W5000 Earpad as they are leather, and I like the design ergonomics of it.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. Although similar, the ATH-AD900X can handle more power and in some cases has better frequency response.
