I'm looking for an amp for my DT990 Pro 250ohms. As long as it's 200 or under, maybe a tad more, and I'd prefer portable unless there's something non portable that's great for the price. I'm mostly looking for an AMP/DAC combo so it's all in one package and I don't have to buy anything else. So which is better between the E7 and T5? And I'm open to other suggestions.

Gear mentioned in this thread:
O2 + ODAC (jds labs)
Those are some good options, mostly in the $200 area. Read the big thread on the e17. It seems powerful, well performing, and received well buy the guys around here. Leckerton UHA-4 is an amp/dac from what i've read excels as an amp. No line out from the DAC though, if that's an issue.
I'd say do some reading on the e17 if you haven't.
