hey, since i see you've owned both the Audioengine D1 and o2+odac, which one wold you say is better? I'm trying to find out everywhere about the two of them but i just cant figure out, everyones saying good things. I was planning to buy either one of them for my AKG k7xx's that I'm going to buy later today. I also live in Canada and especially now the dollar really went down, what its it? like 0.65 = 1 american. Thanks for you input

I actually never used the D1.  I sold it to a buddy before opening it.  The O2+ODAC is really good, but IMO it's more a hack job unit.  You can either get all the parts and build it yourself, or buy a finished unit from one of many online audio stores.  It's a good unit and very portable, but if you only need something for home use, then consider the Schiit Magni/Modi stack.  It's around the same price, and definitely more polished.
