The Sub-$100 Portable Amps Shootout – 11(+1) amps compared - Page 18

post #256 of 268

Nice thread again ClieOS, love all your threads. This basically secured Fiio E11's position in my first amp purchase. I want and amp that will go with a Squeezebox Classic that I found in my house. Didn't feel like it was driving my AKG K204 Studios properly, I could be wrong. But it looks like that's what I'm after now, thanks! Thanks for your hard work, I always seem to turn to you when I want to find anything on head-fi.

Thanks for the research ClieOS. Should help choose a portable to help my rubbish, on the go laptop setup.

You will probably get most out of a USB DAC/AMP combo.

A lazy question but but any quick rec that does not require AC power source under 200?

I will research around as well. Thanks

Many USB DAC devices just work on USB power and also power the amp section of the device.

Fiio E7 for example.

I'm looking for a portable amp solution that would also be good for using with my desktop as well as I switch from both frequently. I am unsure as to which amp I should be looking at for this. My current headphone and IEM inventory include Audio Technica ATH-ES7, Vsonic GR02 Bass Edition, Hippo VB's, and I'm looking to purchase another set of headphones for around the $150 mark that are definitely not bass shy (currently looking at the Ultrasone DJ1's). Which amp or amp/dac combo would be the best for this for the sub $100 price range? The cheaper the better of course!

 

Thanks.

Fiio E17, much better than the E7.

I have recently ordered Pa2v2 and i was wondering , is cmoybb 2.03b really better ? 

 

My headphones are IEM that have a lot of bass , i use Hippo Vb and Xiaomi IF , vsonic gr02 . I would like to try cmoybb as well but if the differences are minimal and easy to distinguish them i would just stick with pa2v2 .

 

Which one should have the most SQ for my IEM ?

If you asked me, there is without any doubt that cmoyBB is better, on both measurement as well as subjective listening. Though, all of you IEM seems to be fairly easy to drive, so I won't say they will hugely benefit from amping.

MA750 doesn't have a very strong flavor, so most amps will go well with it. The question, do you think you really need an amp for it?

So an update, I tried with my s3 for a few more days and still wasn't happy, kept remembering how much better my 're were with s1 voodoo sound before I lost them over a year or so ago. So I decided to buy a dx50 and it's just so much better, bass is great now especially
