I am looking for a portable combined headphone amp and usb dac, is there anything that betters the E17 without going crazy money? Can get the E17 for about £85 brand new now.
Was considering a Xonar STX but it would then restrict me to one source, where as i can use the E17 as a dac even with my galaxy s3 by all accounts, making it far more appealing!
I've heard the E09k is not worth getting to go with the E17? None of my headphones are crazy hard to drive (DT770-80, UE TF10, JVC HA-S500).
Any input is appreciated :)
PS how big an upgrade will this be from the amp below, being used with a Creative X-Fi Xtreme? I dont have the spec other than OPA2227
