What cheap amp to be paired with Phonak PFEs?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi guys. I would like to buy a portable amp to feed my pfe 111's. I have been thinking about fiio e7 and have seen that they are good. If you have better suggestions please let me know. I'm willing to spend up to $100. By they way, I like e7 because of the dac+amp combination. I am planning to use it as dac when I go out with my netbook. So, please comment about the sq of its dac too. Thanks in advance.

Hi mate, sorry if i ask, I've seen you own a E5. How good is the combination PFE+E5? Thanks smily_headphones1.gif

I am using iBasso T3 with PFE and RE0 and they work well together. Typically, I engage both gain switches in T3 for them. PFE's bass gains in quantity, but other than that I don't remember any notable changes in signature. It sounds pretty good when properly amped, though I doubt whether it does that with E5.

Hi. I am not able to test right now because I lost my e5 and e3 But I'm pretty sure that it would be a good combination

 

@esanthosh thanks for the advice. I will be searching on it.

I would recommend the T3.  Having owned a T4 and an E5 (which sounds very similar to the E7) the T4 was much more detailed accurate than the FiiO.

You are welcome man!

 

@SoulSyde what is the difference btw t3 and t4? T4 is cheaper.

From what I am told the T3 is a better built amp.  When I purchased my T4, the T3 was out of production, but iBasso has since brought it back.  I told my T4 a while ago, but I have plans on purchasing a T3 shortly.

 

I thought my T4 was a good amp for the price/size, so I'm sure I will be pleased with the T3.
