Thank You Very Much.
Probably omerbu1 you have already solved your doubt long time ago... right?
Actually, I wonder Cowon C2 + Fiio E11 (Cost ~ $250USD) --> output to BeyerDynamic T5p (Cost ~ > $1200+ USD),
The C2 + E11 is surely and truly enjoyable to listen ( I have the same set ),
But compared to my Colorfly C4 or Philips SACD player --> Nuforce HDP With Shure SRH1840.
Immediately, I feel that every aspect of the audio quality / performance has ~ 50%+ difference.
Potential of SRH 1840 is thus revealed much more certainly.
Basically, I don't think E11 is powerful enough, and C2's limit is revealed totally...thought both are good stuff of high C/P ration
