Firstly, I only found Head-Fi a few days ago, and it’s amazing! The discussions are great and a pleasure to read, probably because everyone is so keen about the topics.
Anyway, I’m struggling to choose my first portable amp / DAC unit, which I’ll be teaming with my Sennheiser PXC 450s. I’ll be using the rig for about 3 hours on the train each day (the reason for the 450s), and will be either watching movies on my lap-top or (more likely) listening to my iPod.
My price cap is about $200, and I'm currently thinking of:
- Leckton UHA-4
- Fiio E17
- iBasso D2+ Boa
I had thought of the Headstage Arrow and the RSA Mustang, but that would be going over budget.
Music would be a variety of classical, rock and alternative. No heavy metal or rap though (not quite my thing). Pink Floyd, Nick Drake and Pearl Jam come to mind.
Looking forward to any suggestions or comments!
