I just splurged on some Heir Audio 3.ai IEMs (pats self on the back). Nevertheless, I am aware of the fact that with these beautiful pieces of art on their way, I should probably get myself a AMP/DAC for my listening needs. Here's the deal
Earbud Type: Heir Audio 3.AI
Music Type: Electronic, EDM, Techno, and well, similar genres.
File type: 320 kbps/ FLAC/ ALAC
Source: Home Desktop/ Apple iPod Touch 4th Gen./ Nokia Lumia 822
Budget: $200 on Amazon.com only. I am currently broke (I know, "Welcome to Head-Fi, say goodbye to your wallet), but I do have $200 Amazon credit.
Extra: I want these for portable use as well as it being a AMP and a DAC. Hence, I have been looking heavily into Fiio Products, as they offer both. I have been looking at the Fiio E17 as well as the Fiio Andes (Fiio E07K). Has anyone used either, and/or can recommend one over the other?
Also, all ideas/ opinions are welcome! I love hearing about wonderful things from you!
