DAC war - Nuforce Icon UDAC2, FiiO E10, E07K, or E17? I'm stuck....

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Out of all of these, the only one I haven't heard is the E10. So now:

 

I currently use a FiiO E11 to drive my Sennheiser HD558. I'm looking in the market for a USB DAC, and am currently stuck between the Nuforce Icon UDAC2, FiiO E10, E07K, and the E17. I think I'm leaning more toward the Nuforce or the E07K... So after spending way too much time reading reviews this morning, I'm just straight-up asking. What do yall have to say?

Someone told me that the DAC in the nuforce wasn't as high quality as the ones that come in iPod.

Really? Dang that's depressing. Welp, I think I'm going with the E07K. The E10 seems to have a pretty obvious highs rolloff (from FiiO's website)

Km not sure if that's the right nuforce model though.

Eh, am I reading that right it's -0.1dB down at 20khz? If that's so and you can hear that I donate you a free LCD-2.

I'd say down 1.5 dB at 20kHz. While that's maybe not quite audibly neutral, the deviance is nothing to worry about.
