Pocket-size amp to go with LCD-2, $300 budget - is there such a thing?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi guys

 

Planning to buy the Audeze LCD-2 this week along with the Fiio X3 Player.

 

What i want is an amp that will fit in my pocket and that will not be too much bigger than the X3 Player. Willing to spend up to around the $300 max if possible.

 

I don't need to have the best sound ever - as long as the sound i get will still be fun and a BIG step up from a Denon AHD-2000 out of an iPod.

 

 

So far i have considered the iBasso PB2 ($369 in Australia), JDSLabs Objective 2 ($200 in Australia, favoring this at the moment) & the Corda 2 Stepdance ($359).

 

There are a couple of threads on this topic but they are a little out of date and not as specific as my needs.

 

Another one I am considering is the Fiio E12 which is very affordable at $129 - but the guy at the store laughed at me when i said i wanted to pair the E12 with the LCD's.

 

 

Are there any other suggestions guys? It's going to be for semi-portable use, mainly just moving around the house so pocket size is essential.

The ALO Mk3-B is pretty compact for the amount of power it puts out. You can probably find one in the classifieds for around 350-400.

get a refurbished arrow 3G from the official store - for just 200$ , imho this is an utter steal and amazing value-for-money
