Hi. I am in phase of research for my next system. The headphone will be Q701. But i am frustrated about powering section. I listen music %80 from my mobile phone and %20 from my computer. They are in different rooms. I listen while working on desk with mobile phone. So i couldn't decide to buy an dac-amp or just an amp. And if i go for dac-amp it should be useable as just an amp. And i wonder if it sounds bad using mobile phone as source. I need advice in this. May be i go for some itx form little computer for my desk listening.
I searched forum for amps, dacs. The Objective2 is higly recommended, fiio e17 is recommended. But what i want is a full-size thing. Discrate, 220v big badass thing. I dont even know if there is one for my budget(200$ or 250$). I found nfb-12.1 which looks very good. The problem is it can't be used as just an amp.
By the way, i don't my carrying a solid state room to room :D It will be in home anyway. To desk to computer, computer to desk, not a big deal.
Amp should be solid state, not tube.
Any help, suggestion is appreciated.
