If your having trouble comming up with funds for a more expensive DAC/AMP Combo, i highly suggest the E7/E9 Combo. This can be had for $200 and will power even the most difficult to drive headphones adequeately, it has received nothing but positive praise on this forum, and you wont have to consider upgrading for a long time. For the price its really a steal. This combo will definately be my next purchase!
Honestly, the Schiit Asgard would be a much better choice than the E7/E9 and it's only $250.
So would the Audio gd Fun or Sparrow.
Have you heard the E9? Please say you have before making such assumptions.
Much better... just.... the hyperbole here is getting ridiculous.
Why yes I have...have you heard the Schiit Asgard?
IMO, it was "much better". The Asgard competes with $400-$500 amps, the FiiO E9 is a nice starter amp...again, my impressions. Have you heard the FiiO E9 with the HD650s/HD800s?
