So recently I had a need to buy a great pair of IEMs, and I needed to get a good DAC/AMP to use with all of the WAV files on my laptop. Getting the Vsonic GR07s meant I had the ability to dredge up the very best of whatever unit I chose. So after asking quite a few questions here that never did get answers, I decided to just purchase several and do a comparison ... I also had two nice friends who loaned me their units as well.
The idea was to do a very comprehensive review that compared all of the intricate attributes, and tell about all of the differences. The issue is that one of these devices just stomped down all of the others with simply MUCH better sound, and there was simply ZERO comparison..... and in my mind at least, no longer a need to do the comparison in depth. And the funny thing is, it was the one device that I was literally talked into trying, and I had almost no hope for it against some of what I thought would be stiff competition !
Here were the would be players in this game :
Headamp Pico Dac/Amp
Nuforce uDac 2 SE
One of these units simply dug up information in the recordings the others just missed. Textures and nuances were MUCH more present and enjoyable, It was truly a complete shock to me, but one of these units made the rest just fall far behind ....
This is the easiest and best recommendation I have ever been able to make in the Headfi world ..... Do not think ... do not question ,.. just try one and see,
