UD100 (ES9023), Fiio D30K or Fiio X3 (WM8740) for a Tube Amp?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi, I have an UD100 and a Fiio D30K and am thinking of getting a Fiio X3 (depending on responses here)

 

May I know which DAC would be the best to pair with my tube amp? I am looking for something that will not color my music too much before going into my amp.

 

Or rather, is the Sabre less neutral than the WM8740?

 

Thanks!

Why would you want a X3 purely as a DAC? Get UD100 or UD110, both are better sounding than X3 as DAC.

I am planning to upgrade my DAP (Clip Zip) too, so when Fiio managed to turn the X3 from a DAP into a DAP + DAC combo, I decided to consider that option too.

 

And I do have both UD100 and Fiio D30K already, but am deciding which one(s) to sell off for space reasons (I figured that I needed only one and every dollar counts y'know? ;) ).

Check out the main X3 thread on the portable source forum, I think there is a deal on X3 for less than $130~140 or so.

I think that deal's no more; tried that link a few times but got the normal price. The deals thread that the link came from is also inaccessible.
