Budget DAC/AMP for UE 4 Pro custom IEM

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

So I'm pretty brand new to these forums, I've read several articles about cheaper DAC and amps.  I just ordered my first ever set of higher quality listening devices (UE 4 pro).  This is coming from only ever listening to like $20 headphones/iems.  I'm be using them periodically as stage monitors using Avioms, but primarily I'll be using them listening to music on my laptop, which I've read, laptops have pretty bad output.

 

Anyways, I'm looking to spend about $150 to get the most out of my UEs (should be shipping Aug 29!!!).  Ultimately, I'm a complete sound newbie when it comes to iems, but I can definitely appreciate good sound and tone from guitars (I own a Taylor 914ce), so I'm hoping my investment will sound like night and day from my cheap iems I've been using.

 

Any input is appreciated.

 

Thanks.

I've been doing some research on my own and I'm leaning towards the FiiO E7, just because of the price point and some good reviews on it.

 

Would this product be a good place to start?

Honestly don't know but as I have upgraded to Headstage Arrow 4G you can have mine. PM me your adress (including nation) and I'll send it to you on monday. In retrospect I wouldn't buy it after listening to Arrow 4G but it might do wonders for your setup for all I know, so there you go... tongue.gif

I'm definitely excited to try out your E7! Thanks a bunch StimulatedBoy!!! Even if you say it isn't as good as your Arrow 4G, I'm certain it'll still sound better than just my laptop!
