USB DAC + Amp for IEM Recommendations

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have a set of Shure SE 530's (36ohm) and looking to get a DAC/Amp combo or separate units. I'm pretty new to this and the choices have really overwhelmed me. Please help me and suggest a few units so I can at least get a more narrow selection.

 

My Requirements:

-USB Input

-accepts 96khz minimum

-Total of $800 budget.

 

The units I'm somewhat interested in now are:

-Fiio E7

-Yulong D100 (where do you even buy this? I saw one for sale on eBay but it was from Hong Kong and I'm worried about knock offs)

-Fubar 4

 

 

 

Thanks,

Josh

I have the E7, it only does 44.1/16 :P

With $800 budget you can consider ones that are a lot better.

The D100 have no fakes.

Thanks for the suggestion.

 

I actually ended up getting the iBasso D12. I hear a lot of people say the D10 and the SE530's and the D12 is the successor to the D10 so I'm hopeful.

You may wait for the new USB DAC from Bladeus (about $500), which should be interesting,

and buy a amp around $300.
