Seeking suggestions for portable DAC/AMP for HD650 and HD800

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for a portable system for HD650/800. I was considering HIFIMAN 901, but it's out of stock in Japan for quite a while. Besides, as a portable player, it seems like 901 is still not very enough for HD650.

 

I was suggested to try HIFI-M8, but still, it's not available in both Japan and China.

 

Now, my candidate is Sony PHA-2, which is not yet released. I'm wondering the performance of PHA-1 with HD650 and HD800. Can someone give me some advises?

 

I'm open for any kind of suggestions.

 

Thank you very much.

It takes quite a long time and the shipping costs a lot.

 

Besides, if there's a easy solution, why bother the difficult one?

I check the HIFI-M8 on ebay. And the additional cost is unbelievably high, more 260 USD to China. I guess the costume duty is pretty scary. 

 

Now, I have narrowed my options to PHA-2 (release on 25th OCT), iQube V3, ALO Intruder.

 

Problems are:

 

1. PHA-2 may be not enough to drive HD 650 or HE-500;

2. iQube V3 is similar to PHA-2;

3. RSA Intruder only supports 24/96 files.

 

Can someone please help me with this?

 

Thank you very much.
