I've been trying to see which of these is better for a USB DAC, but I can't decide.
I feel that the FiiO E7 has an advantage from the start being a portable headphone amp as well as a USB DAC. Note that I don't need another portable amp, as my cMoy BB V2.03 is above satisfactory for me right now.
I've heard that there is a problem with the E10, being it cuts off about the first .7 seconds of audio. This would be a problem for me if this is true, as I listen to a lot of albums that are genuinely continuous.
My budget is maximum $100, but I would much prefer something in the $50-$70 range, so if there is something better in that price range, please let me know.
I've heard about Schiit DACs, and with the Schiit Modi being $99, would that be my best option?
