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.

Fiio E10, Fiio E17, or Schiit Magni/Modi for Q701
Gear mentioned in this thread:
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?
I use my Q701 with a Magni, i like it..
About Modi, I don't have an opinion..but i guess if you look in this thread, you can find something:
