Hey guys,

 

I am in need of purchasing a quality desktop amp/dac for my ultrasone pro 900. I currently have FiiO E11 and Hifimediy Sabre USB DAC, but want to upgrade. Which ones do you guys recommend? Any input is appreciated.

 

Thanks!

I am currently looking at the Hifiman EF2A, Aune T1, the Little Dot MK II and the Maverick D1. Any other recommendations are welcomed.

The EF2 is pretty well liked.  I had the Maverick.  It's a piece of crap.  Don't waste one penny on that.

Ok. How about the Aune T1 and the Little Dot MK II?

Okay, it's now between the Hifiman EF2A and the Aune T1. Which one is better between the two?

I have the Aune T1 and think it is good value for the price point.Using a pair of Grado SR80i's with it and find myself not looking for more at this point in time anyways.The build quality is very good,switches are solid and the volume pot is very smooth.the DAC section is what encorporates the tube ,not the amp from everything I've read.The LINE IN will bypass the tube.The USB will use the DAC section.

Thanks for the reply, but got the EF2A a few days ago. I really like it!
