Can anyone tell me how would E17 compare to ELE DAC + CMoy combo? I'm new when it comes to headphone amps and external DACs and I was considering buying something like ATH-M50 or DT 990 Pro + cheap DAC like ELE and cheap amp like CMoy; but I was wondering if E17, which among other things has a much nicer form factor, might be a better solution. I guess my question is: is E17 worth more than twice the price of ELE+Cmoy?
Cmoy's come in different kinds and vairants and that DAC you picked is not very well known or used. A direct comparison is nearly impossible to come up on what you are thinking about and an E17 with a user having all of them.
Is North Face worth twice the price of Columbia jackets? It depends on how you use it and where you go right? Same rationale apply's here.
Is two-in one shampoo and conditioner worth more than seperate ones? You wouldn't know unless you or someone that you trust tells you right? The only problem here for both of these examples is that many of tried them and many have opinions. Over here, it is hard to test units or compare them as there are so many.
Sadly there is no definite answer for these Unite X vs popular unit Y's as most don't have the Chinese made Unit X from Ebay.
