I'm using low impedance headphones (Audio Technica ATH-M50) and with the computer volume at 100% at low gain, I don't go much past volume 3-4 on the E10.  Thanks again for your help

That depends on the type of headphone though. Dynamics with a high impedance tend to be a little bit more difficult to drive while orthos with a very low impedance like the HiFiMan HE-500 or the HE-6 are harder to drive yet.

I have the E10 and uDac2 and will be making an A/B comparison.

Is the E17 worth the wait?



it depends on what you are using it for. but from ClieOS and Headfonia initial reviews.....it is worth the wait if you need to use all it's features :)
