Been searching around all week trying to figure out what a good budget Dac would be to use for my laptop.. I was actually going to pull the plug on the E10... then I was thinking to myself... The E17 is pretty nice... but $80 more nice?... Wished there was something a little in between. There were a few but the LCD screen on the E17 was really catching eye.
So I searched around and J&R is having a $10 coupon but that wasn't enough off the $134. Then noticed SonicElectronix was $105 shipped! Thought to myself... that can't be true, so I looked on Fiio's website and they're an authorized dealer! Definitely true! No hesitation, said screw it and bought it. Can't complain. Ughhh the search is finally over and done with.
$105 shipped E17 from SonicElectronix. Just FYI
