Alternative to Nuforce Icon 2

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Well in the next two weeks or so I am going to begin putting together a desktop hifi rig. With my main 2-channel setup in storage, this will be my primary source of music and I forsee duties being split 50/50 between speakers and headphones. Thus far I am leaning stronging toward a Nuforce Icon 2 and AudioEngine P4 combo. Any other suggestions for amp and speaker combos that I may be overlooking? I want to minimize clutter and like that the Icon 2 is combination headphone/speaker amp and DAC. Are there any other models that combine an all in one utility? Budget is rougly $600 and the headphones being used are Sennheiser HD600s. Thanks.

I've been looking for alternatives as well and so far the only alternatives I've seen are these:

 

Travagan Red/Green:

Glow Audio One:

I think for my purposes though, the NuForce Icon has the right feature set
