Has anyone tried the Edition 8 with the much discussed Audioquest Dragonfly?
I bought one and it brought my ED8 to the next level, sounding very detailed and powerful. Just more of everything.
However I have never used another headphone amp with my ED8 so I am not sure how it compares to the other amps. Any comments and experience with the other amps appreciated.
Yeah, I have a DF and Ed8. IME they do a good. Slightly preferred them out of an ODAC/O2 combo I used to have, just a bit better control down low. People say they don't scale well but I primarily used mine out of nice desktop setup (Metrum Octave -> WA6SE maxxed) and IMO there yet 'another level' performance beyond a good portable setup that you can wring from these.
But then you can also play them out of a simple DAP and they sound unusually good for full sized cans driven out of such a source - such versatility, aesthetics/build quality, portability/iso make them worth what they are to a large degree IMO I don't really use mine (or any full size cans) anymore as I'm on a strictly IEM diet since quitting a desk job and do the remote contracting thing out of various cafes.
