I ordered my black ELE DAC from travelinwind on Dec 1st and got it on the 12th. No problems with it at all. It's everything I'd hoped it would be and more, especially since it's actually my first DAC! I'm pairing it with my E11 and Grado SR60s. I do find it to be somewhat bright without the amp, so the E11 is a really nice match for it. I've clocked in a lot of hours with it in the past week, and couldn't be happier.
However, now I'm thinking about a desktop amp so my wife can borrow the E11 once in a while. Does anyone have a recommendation for a budget amp that would pair well with the ELE and my Grados?
