For my recently acquired 990 pro´s I ordered a Fiio E10. Currently I´m just using my on-board soundcard (Realtek 898). However, I just got an offer for a used Asus Sonar Essence ST for about 90$ which is actually 10$ less than I payed for the Fiio with shipping, and half of full price where I live.
Which would provide me with the better sound quality? Should I cancel my E10 order, as from what I gather the Essence ST is better? Will be used about 70/30 for gaming/music. Also I´m not going to be using the Fiio anywhere else than for my desktop pc.
I might be looking to upgrade further at a later stage, maybe to Sennheiser 600/650´s.
