I have a E17 and thats it right now, I'm looking for a desk top amp preferable tube but I like bass impact too but either way it will be something interesting I will enjoy. Basically if I go SS I want it to be clean and have good impact, a tube amp I understand will be different.
I really want the ALO Pan Am but it is over budget especially with the power supply. I have also considered the HF5. How good is the HF-2A? and stuff from Qinpu? I like that the Pan am and hifiman amps have DAC's in them
I also really really like the Schiit Asgaurd's looks and pairing with the bifrost but from reading this review
I'm a little uneasy about getting the vahalla. And the bifrost is to much $ with the USB, I don't understand why a DAC wouldn't have a USB in? or why it costs $100
What about the Magni and Modi? How do they compare to the Ashaurd?
Maybe the Matrix M-stage? idk
