Help me list Amp/DAC with crossfeed and knob around 400 $

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I give up on trying to add a Cute Beyong cabled to my Total Bithead after understand that i'll lost quality as Bithead don't have line out

So i want to buy a new Amp/DAC with crossfeed and cool knob, i read the Portable amp roundup! 20 portable amps reviewed thread and found only One Amp/DAC: HEADPHONIA Portable Mini Amp PRO USB, he have all function i need but plastic chassis and all cables in front is really a mess up...

Can you list me all the Amp/DAC with crossfeed and knob around 200 $ so ?

For now i want to keep my Total Bithead for portable use, that's why i don't sell it to have more money for new Amp

Thank's guys

I'm currently checking out both the Meyer Corda Move and the e-Mu 0404 USB.
I just started a thread looking for some advice about the two (both include a DAC and an amp).
Only the Corda Move has a hardware crossfeed, but the 0404 has a lot more knobs...

You're right, the Corda Move can be listed.

I have problem to read all .doc of each model from meier-audio,



this is not a new problem, look like i need more then Word to read those .doc, anybody who can read them can copy and paste the content of the .doc in a Word document so i can read them ? you can upload it http://www.savefile.com/



About Corda Move i'll like a bigger knob and not in plastic, Corda Arietta look Amazing but don't have DAC, what a shame !! i'll buy it for sure if he had DAC, he have the knob i want to play with and look great, like the Cute Beyound + Fubar i can't buy anymore because Cute don't have crossfeed, Why i talk again about Cute.. it kill me to not buy those Cutie's

That's a good question to a newbie like me

If only a cheap USB key at 30 $ can convert digital to analog why we pay Lot more for DAC ??????

Why not get this:

http://www.turtlebeach.com/products/micro/home.aspx

and you can get any amplifier you want to connect to this or run portably/directly from a source!
The sound is as good,or even better than the Bithead!

Around $400 - I do not think you could go wrong with the Corda Aria. At least in IMO.

if it doesn't have to be portable, then that would be my choice as well. you should have no problem finding one used for that amount.
