Best sounding and most powerful USB powered DAC/Amp combo?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I was thinking Apogee One or the Duet.  Your thoughts or experience on which is the BEST sounding and most powerful USB powered DAC/Amp combo?

 

Apogee One:

The Duet isn't USB-powered, it uses Firewire, which has a higher output.  The Duet has a quite reasonable headphone amp built in, but nothing particularly special.

I'm going to throw it out there. How about the Fiio E10?

Ooh, old thread bump.  There's now a USB Duet II.

The DAC/AMPs like E17+E9, XM6(upgraded buffers put out full one watt), D7, D12 are powerful enough for portable use.
