I got a D5000 and E7 mainly for PC. I feel E7 drives D5000 badly, making D5000 sound worse than my UE900. After some search, I decided to either pair E7 with E9 (~$110), or to pair E2 with O2 (~$160, dunno if this would work), or to get O2+DAC (~$300).
Which one is the best option in terms of expense/performance for D5000? I would be happy if my amp/dac could get 80% out of D5000. Is it too high for all my options?
After some kind recommendations, now I have the following options:
= Magni + Modi
= Asgard + Modi
= Matrix M-Stage + Modi
= Matrix M-Stage + ODAC
