OK NOW FOR REAL.
i have the Q701 and LOVE THEM !!!
now i do not have a desktop amp... only have the ffio e5 didnt feel any diff amp or unamped.
HOW BIG is the difference with a proper amp for the Q701 ? is it that huge and worth the money ? i am just an ordinary guy i dont do recording or anything, just play HQ music...
my next question is what is the BEST amp\DAC for the Q701 for 80-100$ (perfer to buy from amazon has 100$ gift card)
saw ppl talk about the E9 but i see its a dock or something.. dont feel like buying more stuff, just want amp|dac that does the job well and improve drasticly the soundquality of the Q701
