I've recently been delving into audiophile territory lately, much thanks to this site! Anyway, been doing a lot of research on revamping my audio gear, because from what I was reading, it needed a change and I agreed.
I started out before coming here just with an ipod touch (gift) and skullcandy titans (deal), so you know where Ive already come from.
Now, I have a galaxy nexus tuned with cm10.1, franco kernel for the audio enhancements, with noozy + eizo rewire for its processing, and I recently got my hands on a pair of monoprice 8320's, after reading about what a craze they were.
My main point is now I want to expand this audio quality to all I have besides my phone, because I dont have enough resources to tune my laptop (Sager Np9170, heavily upgraded), my ipod (touch 4g) and a few various others of little mention.
From this, Ive come to this conclusion of items to get to seriously revamp all these.
Fiio E7 USB dac/amp, $74
Debating beyerdynamics DT880s ($238) vs Audio Technica A900X, $244
Ipod L11 LOD cable, $9.49 (cheapest LOD cable on amazon)
My main points of contention about if this seems like a proper way to go;
I realize my galaxy nexus most likely wont be able to utilize the dac of the fiio, only the amp, which is fine. Just the amp would make it that much grander.
If the E7 is enough to properly drive the DT880's (pretty likely) or the A900X (most definitely) at high volume
Thanks in advance for any help I can get in this endeavor, its been a journey so far, and a big thanks to this site already!
