suggest me a fun and engaging USB DAC on my PC under 100$

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

hello.. for over 1week of research i still not get what i needed (Sorry for my bad english)

 

so basically i almost read 3/4 of the post here in headfi because of dac

 

BTW my list of headphones are

 

Sony XB500 Modded(Recabled and changed drivers)

Ath-M50

Shure 215e

 

My List of AMPS are

 

Digizoid ZO2

Fiio E6

 

and i came down to this..

 

Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi HD USB Audio System with THX SB1240e

 

alright i heard a good reviews and comments about it being awsome on game sounds but didnt get much comments on music section so im still not sure if im going to buy this and also i heard they are not pretty much awsome because lacking of what they call DOLBY live

 

FiiO E10

 

okay almost same price range as creative sound blaster and i heard alot of comments on music section and thats awsome because i heard they are really superb DAC at this price range but most of the reviews i heard are saying that fiio is not on the Fun and engaging side which made me think twice.. i read that fiio focused on more live monitoring clarity.. so basically i love my digizoid for being engaging.. but nahh still not sure about Fiio e10

 

Schiit Modi

 

well i think this is kinda more pricey than those two.. but since i think it wont release the potential of this dac without its partner amp(still dont know) and im still thinkin that this rig might be an over kill for my headphones i know they are so so good but it might be too over qualified on me

 

Asus Xonar U3

 

alright most of my friends here are also suggesting me this.. since they said its cheap(which i dont really care if its 80$ to 100$) but still considering the price of this DAC it wont reach the level of those two so still thinking about it

 

 

well i need really help for my DAC which sound fun and engaging on music
