(yet another) newbie question...
I want the O2/ODAC combo from JDS Labs, but I only have around $175 at the moment. Should I get the O2 and use it with the laptop headphone jack for now? or would it be better if I get something like the Fiio E17, or E10, that has a built in DAC/amp?
If you only have $175, you should definitely get this one instead --> http://hifimediy.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=62&product_id=83
No one, and I really mean no one, will hear any difference, with any kind of speaker. They are basically identical in every single way.
Edit: Sorry, the Hifimediy has optical-out, that's the difference.
