Wanted:
WTB: Hifiman EF2A or similar

Will Ship To: Anywhere

Looking for a budget DAC/Amp to pair with woodied Grados and Hifiman HE-300.

 

 

I currently have a Nufurce uDac 2 but would like to try something else, would like a tube amp but not required.  If you have anything in the EF2A price range let me know!

 

I'm pretty new so I'm not sure if using the uDac simply as a DAC and routing the output to a dedicated amp makes sense, if so let me know what you have and how much you want.

 

Shipping would be to 55072, highly preferred USPS (Federal staff housing and they consistently actually come to my house and drop it off rather than ignore me and send it back like UPS/Fedex)

Not sure, I haven't been into headphones for much longer than that.

Yup :)

 

If it fails here I'll get a new one.  Figured I'd try to save a few bucks, gain a feedback point and offload something from a Head-fier that could use a few bucks first.

I have my ef2a on ebay, with Mullard Cv4010 tubes and 1944 Raydeon 6ak5's. I didn't get any bids on it last time around, so you might be able to get it "cheap".

I don't know if posting external sites to Head-fi when you don't even meet posting requirements to sell is frowned upon, or maybe even against TOS. If so, whoops.

 

Edit: I had my original Udac hooked up to my EF2. Amplification through the tubes, utilizing the DAC portion of the Udac. Sounds better than either product alone (IMO)

I'll give it a shot!  Thanks for the link.

Posted above, I'd rather gain a feedback point here and offload something from someone that doesn't want it anymore so they can fund something new and fun.  If all else fails I'll buy a new one ;)
