Xonar U7 or Fiio E10 for home use?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I want to go with some external soundcard with some AMP (for future use, currently I have SuperLux HD 681B, and they don't really need an amp), but I use my PC mainly for gaming, youtube and music listening.

 

The E10 is great as an amp but it's just stereo and I dont know how the positioning in games and movies will be working there.

 

The U7 looks like a solid decision, but I don't really know how good Amp and DAC are built in there.

 

The price difference in our stores is about 10$, which is not that much (U7 more expencive).

 

Dont know what to buy...

The Fiio E10 has a more powerful headphone amplifier.

But if the games you play need Headphone Surround Sound, then get the U7.

The U7 should still be good for headphones up to 150-Ohm.

What prices are the E10 and U7.
