I recently bought Philips Fidelio X1 and now looking for a great - small size - portable headphone amp.
I pay lot of attention in sound quality and objective is to match with an iphone for portable purpose and plugged to PC in home use.
As I was initially looking for an Amp+DAC so some recommended Fiio E17 but now I'm not really sure to need a DAC.
Without DAC, maybe E12 would represent a better option, tbc.
For home use (PC), does the E17 DAC better that my integrated Mobile PC audio card (basic one) ?
With a DAC, is the E17 the better option ?
Without DAC, is the E12 the way to go ?
Sound quality E17 vs E12 ?
Thanks for your feedback
