But the Microstreamer can act as just a DAC, which is what I'd be doing and pairing it with my Arrow amp. I bought the LX last week, along with the Dragonfly. The Dragonfly is going back, and the Microstreamer will be showing up today. The Microstreamer is newer, has asynch, and I also like the idea that if I wanted or needed, it could be my only unit (if I didn't have the Arrow with me).
i just got my microstreamer today, loving it so far !
i too may use another head/pre for my a2's.
and if i wanna take my music on the road, just take the micro and roll !
i have the fiio e9k coming, hope that will sound good, or not muck up the microstreamer's sound too much
