Amp/DAC combo out there that are super neutral that will work really well with 325is and HD650s...

So I've made these threads before, but now that I finally heard the E7/E9 combo I'm going to splurge on a DAC/amp

 

From what I've read, the sensitivity differences between the Grado and Senns is significant which could impact the sound quality based on some 8-fold rule( don't remember all the details)

 

So far I've been looking at the Audio-GD NFD-12, Zero, and the E7/E9 combo

 

Based on price and availability is the E7/E9 the better overall combo? 

 

I want it to be as neutral as possible.  I just want my headphones to sound large as hell.  One of the noticeable differences of my Grados on the Fiio combo is I could keep pumping the volume VERY loud without hurting my ears

Does that have a DAC built in?

Nah. Great amp tho.

I guess it really comes down to the Fiio combo vs Audio-GD

 

I'm really interested in making sure the Grado sound is preserved, because once I get the amp I might end up selling the Sennheisers as, in my opinion, the 325is are perfect

It seems like the amp section is dead right now, i have a few cents to put in.

 

I don't have them yet but I am about to get Denon D2000 Headphones and my first amp set up to go along with them.

 

From what I've read, E7/9 combo is really great for most mid-tier cans, price is good, quality is good and they just go perfectly with each other.

 

I don't have them and haven't experienced them, so don't take my word, but rather use this as a slight weight towards the fiio combo.

It adds no coloration to the sound. This combo is a good way to go.
