I'm sure it's quite a bit night and day more than my simple E11. It was between a new portable amp or the HE400's. I wanted something that is going to make my jaw drop. I couldn't pass up the HE400's. Think I'll get a Schiit Magni and then the hybrid Lyr when it's doable for me, I don't do much portable listening anymore, when I do it's at home anyways. Unfortunately I don't know if my jaw will drop yet because I still haven't received them -_-
What are your thoughts on the 2Stepdance? It was among my selection when I was looking at portable amps. Have you compared it to any other amps at any price?
