Im a bit of a long time lurker, so sorry if I haven't searched enough for the answer to my question....
I currently use my Galaxy Tab (Original) as my Media Player, and I believe it has a fairy decent DAC in it, I use Senn PX100 and UE MetroFi 220 IEM's with it.
However I have now switched over to my work laptop for my main source. So I would like to purchase a new DAC / AMP (1 box only) to power a new pair of Headphoes (I think I am going with the Sony MDR-ZX700 as they are £60.
I have read a few reviews of the Arcam rPAC, however I also read some user opinions regarding it, and it was described as having a very cheap low end DAC. So my question is, has anyone actually done some sort of head to head test involving the rPAC and possibly the HRT HeadStreamer, AudioEngine D1 or FIIO E17, those are the DAC's that are available in the UK.
I really want to order some kit soon, but as usuall, there is nowhere close to where I live to try before I buy, I suppose thats the dissadvantage of this digital age.
Thanks in advance,
