Am shopping for desktop speakers and have my eyes on Focal XS Book and Swans M200MIlKII.
I own e17 and would love to get e09k as well.
Since the aforementioned speakers have built in amps, can I still use e09k to override?
I just relocated and have an excuse to buy almost everything fresh.
Total budget is $1500 US.
A little background:
Proud owner of V-Moda M-100, using Fiio E17 to drive it. In a nutshell I prefer bass towards the strong end.
I work from my home office, and I will have a helper looking after my infant child (less than 1 year old).

I got a pair of m-100 a year ago and absolutely loved it.
Am looking for another pair, an open-back one however, as I have a newborn at home and m-100 forbids me hearing the baby crying and my wife calling me (despite I only keep volume around 20).
May I ask for suggestions?
Ideally a pair with signature close to m-100, a fun can richer in bass with clear highs.
Budget is approximately same as m-100 i.e. $300

Had been using crappy earphone/buds for years until 2 years ago I got a pair of Shure SRH750DJ at half price, then I learned how I have been mistreating my ears for ages. Dispute how I loved this can, the build was terrible -- despite treating them with care the 1st pair broke at the adjuster piece merely 3 months after purchase (seems to be a common...
