I have been an avid reader on this forum for a long time, and now I have registered because I need some help.
I have ATH-w1000x arriving soon, and I want to be prepared in terms of amping.
I already own the Fiio E17, but fear it might not have what it takes to drive the Audio-Techincas although I’m not sure.
I am a little confused about what synergy the connection between the E17 and the E09k really is? From my understanding, it is recommended to turn on bypass on the top unit, which removes the possibility of treble/bass/balance/gain on the combo
Due to where I live and my budget, I am limited to choose between the Fiio E09K and the Rega Ear MK2. If I went with the Rega, I planned to use the E17 as a DAC between the computer and the amplifier.
Woodies: 42 ohms | sens: 100 db
E17: Output Power: >250mW (16 Ω Loaded ) >30mW (300 Ω Loaded)
- - Getting the Audio-Technica W1000x
- - Already have Fiio E17
- - Will I benefit greatly from more power?
- - If yes: Fiio E09 or Rega MK2?
Response is greatly appreciated!
