I was thinking of getting the Valhalla amp as I heard it was one of the best at this price range, but I need a DAC as well. Considering my budget is quite tight, what would be better, the Valhalla with a budget DAC like the FiiO E10 or a different combination/2-in-1?

$300-400 Amp *with* DAC?
Gear mentioned in this thread:
How do the NFBs compare? Does a lower model mean it's technically better? And how do they compare with the Audinst? I read from a few posts that it's better than the NFB-12.
P.S. Sorry if this wasn't the best section to post this thread.
Audio GD products are top notch, really nice, and most of they're amps are fully discrete (which means no cheap opamps).
