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
