In the not too distant future I am looking at buying a decent pair of headphones very tempted by the 701's from what I have read,
I am not an audio expert I am aware these 701's need to be driven well to get their potential and was looking to pair them with the FiiO E17.
So that combo is around my price limit, I would be using this combo from my pc to listen to FLAC and high quality mp3's (various music styles), and some gaming.
*also a added benifit with the E17 i was thinking of combining it with a SansaClip (i know E17 battery life isnt great) for journys and suchlike.
My main question would be does this combo get enough out of the 701's.
I have looked at a few other options but they either seem more expensive e.g. buying a DAC and a desktop headphone amp seperately, or the fact some products seem harder to find to buy/ find a price for.
Thank you for any help in advanced,
