Hey I am looking to update my portable gears to pair with my earsonics sm3, currently I have an ipod video and an ipod touch 3rd generation.
My options right now are:
1)get Fiio E7 (do I need the extra dac if I am pairing it with my two ipods?, is yes, what improvements does it make?)
2)get Fiio E11
3)buy a hifiman 601 or a studio-I
which combo drives the sm3 better and is likely to give me a more clean, detailed, and liquid sound?
If I were to purchase a Fiio amp, do I need to buy cables that connect to my ipods myself or does it come with it?
I read many reviews on the products given above and they all seem to give nice perfomance, which one, in my case, works the best for me given that I own the ipod touch and video?
