Fiio E10, Fiio E17, or Schiit Magni/Modi for Q701

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

So which AMP/DAC combo should I get to drive the Q701 out of my laptop. Don't care about portability but I am looking for a neutral sounding amp/dac combo and the cheaper the better. What would do you guys think would work best for me? I'm leaning towards the magni/modi combo but 200 dollars is a bit steep compared to the others. I'm open to any other setup recommendations.

Seems to be just what I want. Well that's nice. I'll definitely look into this. Thanks

15.32 can drive wide range of cans and value for money. There may not be a necessity to go for upgrade in the near future.

Go for the Schiit combo it's better and it's what I'm doing.

Yeah honestly I'm either going to get the Audio GD 15.32 or the Schiit stack. I heard the Audio GD 15.32 seems to  have a low cost but high shipping costs. And I've only heard good things about Schiit. It's a tough decision. I also read that it might be a good idea to get a cheap DAC and then a Schiit amp. Thoughts on that idea or recommendations for a cheap DAC?
