This is what I'm wondering. A lot people call the E7 overrated or even "good for noobs only" as someone said in another thread. But I wonder how many of those guys are running a set-up that is 3x the price or more. If I paid close to $1000 for a DAC + Amp set up, yea I'd expect the E7 to be a poor imitation of that. But it's ~$215 for the E7, E9, and cable, I'm still looking for something that can beat this within $100 of the price.
If you have something that can, post it up please! Thanks.
ibasso t3d is a good competitor imo
