What AMP/DAC stand alone devices with optical S/PDIF Input can you recommend me with the DT 880/600's, based on your experience? Price class should be about 150-300$, or max. 250€ as I live in germany. I read about FiiO's, Audio GD NFB's or Maverick TubeMagic's but just can't pick one of them. I don't want to buy anything wrong and after almost one week of countless hours of reseraching I have no patience left anymore, to work myself in this huge topic of how amps/DAC's work and what tubes I should exchange to get better SQ etc.
Purposes will be as good as everything: Movies, Music and Gaming.
Check my earlier post out.
I like the FiiO E17.
For the money I am very happy with it.
For $250-300 you can get the E17 and E09K, which is nice because ou have a rotary volume control and charging station for the E17.
It may sound silly, but I really prefer the convenience of the rotary volume control.
This may drive you nuts, and maybe just coincidence, but I've seen a few bad comments WRT the Makerick product posted on Head Fi.
I've never heard one so I can't really comment on the Maverick.
I've heard an Audio Engine D1, a really nice sounding piece of kit.
I know a guy who owns one, he really likes it.
