After thinking and browsing many threads here and elsewhere, I am still wondering if anyone could tell me how good or bad

the Apogee Duet 2 would really be with the Q701.

 

The reasons i insist is that I also want an audio interface to record music, and I am being told the Duet 2

is awesome at that. And that at the same time, for audio listening they the DAC is spectacular

 

So if I went for the Duet 2 I'd have to buy one piece of hardware for both headphones listening and audio recording,

which would mean less stuff on my desk and possibly more money in my wallet.

 

If I would still hear significant improvements for my Q701 headphones I think it would be wise to go for this one,

rather than go for the Lyr from Schitt and then look around for an audio interface.

 

What do you guys think? Is the Duet 2 really not powerful/good enough to drive the Q701?

 

Also, if that's the case they should really be ashamed of themselves, since on their website

they have an image of the duet with a pair of Q701!!!

Apogee is a great company, they just not support PC platform anymore : ( the only option is the Apogee Mini DAC that still support windows).
