Need Fiio E17 replacement

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So unfortunately my E17 got lost on it's way to China and the insurance was denied(no idea why). It's been two months since I've listened to decent sound and it's because I was waiting for that thing to arrive. Anyhow, I'd like to ask for a good portable DAC/AMP that may share the E17's similarities in features. I will be using these with my Sennheiser HD25-1 II or Denon D2000 and my sources would be: SGSII, Macbook Pro or iPod Touch. I'd like the features to be the following if it's possible:

  • 24-bit/192k Playback(for computer use)
  • Portable...
  • $200 budget used or $250 NEW 


I really want an all arounder because I'm planning to get custom IEMs soon so I'd use it with that. Thanks for the help!

If you liked the E17, just get another one.

Yes but what is a step above the E17? Listening to my Lexicon Alpha more recently, I realized that I really like polished vocals with a wide and defined soundstage which I haven't gotten with the E17 when I had it.
