Advise needed: E17 + 02?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi guys,

These few years i got into the world of headphones and head-fi. Which broke my bank actually. haha

I'm looking for advice if you guys would recommend me getting a o2 amp to pair with my dt880 250ohm.

I already have a Fiio E17 now which i uses as a dac/amp with my ESW-9.

However, because i'm planning to get a dt880, 250 ohm, i would also like to get a better amp.

I have look into fiio e09k, and JDS O2. But i feel that JDS O2 is a better amp than e09k.

So if i get a o2 amp, my setup will be e17(dac) -> o2 (amp) -> DT880 (250 ohm).
What do you guys think about this setup? Or i should get E09K instead.

E09k is only slightly cheaper than the o2 in my region.

Thank you for the help guys. Appreciate it much. :)

You can sell your E17 then try... Hifimediy Sabre --> Fiio E12

Also this one highly recommended http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mini-CM6631A-CS4398-24Bit-192Khz-Nonsyschronous-USB-DAC-W-Coaxial-Headphone-Out-/251300492816

I would get the O2, it has a lower output impedance (<1-Ohm) then the E09K (10-Ohm).

So the O2 would be better to use if you got low impedance headphone in the future.
