Schiit Magni/Modi or Fiio E17/E09K Need Help/Impressions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi yall I am wondering if anyone has any experience with both of these combos. I currently own the fiio e17/e09k combo but am wondering if i should try to trade it out fo the schiit combo instead? To my ears the fiio sounds amazing but then again it is the only external amp/dac I have ever owned. Most of my cans are low ohm and I have read a lot of post dogging the fiio setup as being really bad with low impedance cans.

 

I listen to all sorts of music, but mostly more modern stuff(>1950). Basically everything from Johnny Cash to Garth Brooks to Eminem to Maroon 5 and every thing between. The cans I use at home are my AKG k550, Q701 and coming soon will be my Ultrasone Proline 2500 and Denon D600.

 

I was wondering if there is much of a sound signature difference, or if the difference is just to deal with matching up the proper impedance? Also if I were to buy a set of beyer 600 ohm cans would the schiit combo sound as good as the fiio with them?

 

open to any advice, opinions, or help of any kind! thanx

The AH-D600 are only 25-Ohm, so it would seem to make sense to switch from the E09K (10-Ohm) to the lower impedance Schitt Magni (<1-Ohm).

But you might ask on this thread about amplifiers for the Denon AH-D600.

so is there any difference in sound? the reason i ask is because i love the highs and mids in my akg's but if the highs were any stronger i dont think i could stand it.
