Thx for the recommendation. Do you know if the there is any sound quality to be gained if I spring for the E10K-2 instead of the Q1. I don't need it to be super portable.
Hello peeps   I work in an open office environment and I recently bought a new pair of beyer DT1350, when my UE Studio.fi finally caved in. I have been using a dirt-cheap dac/amp (like $20 cheap), but that desperately needs upgrading now. I only need 3.5mm jack out and usb-in. Also it's for easy-allday-listening and I don't want to explain to my wife, why I just blew the X-mas budget on another metal-box - so think cheap thoughts. $100 more or less (preferably less)....

Thx for the input.   What I ended up doing was this: I tested out the onboard soundcard on the motherboard and it actually sounds pretty good - so I´ll be using this as source temporarily. I then bought a Matrix M-stage, which I'm very pleased with. Great build quality and after a few 100 hours of burn-in the bottom notes really came to life and I think it matches the K702 very well.   Next step will be a good external soundcard/dac with optical-2-phono as...
I should probably mention that I'm from Denmark and If I buy an amp outside of europe, I have to add 25% in taxes and 10-20% in customs fee's to the price. This kinda takes the fun out of the fun i think... : ) Inside of Europe no problem!
Hi fellow-geeks   I had actually decided to get a audio-gd nfb-12, but then there was a lot of commotion on this forum whether or not the nfb-12 was bugged or not, so I postponed the purchase for awhile and I got to thinking. - I am currently in the middle of a new pc build and maybe I should get a good soundcard and a dedicated headphone amp instead?   My budget is approximately $300-400, (lower is better) for both SC and amp.   I have a been looking at the...
Do you think the NFB-12 and AKG K702 would be a good match?   Rated impedance 62 ohms Max. input power 200 mW
With regards to the price, I would guess that the nfb-12 will take over for the nfb-11. The nfb-11 was $275. I dont know if the wm8741 chips are cheaper than the ones in the nfb-11? But I would also recon that the post-promo price would be in the $250-275 range.   I'm looking forward to read some in-depth reviews of the nfb-12 the next couple of months until I get my own. The first out-of-the-box impressions are ticking in and they are possitive so far.
I reviewed all the different suggesions and eventually decided to get the NFB-12. The Promo offer was just too good to pass off...
I just ordered the NFB-12, can't wait to get it!
