This is my first post. Been a fan of Head-fi for almost 7 months when I first put on a set of Edition 8 Palladium's that my friend showed off. HAD to know what blew me away and found this little gem online.
I think I have a rather unique question because I know the cans and amp have been talked about over and over, but probably not in my case. I was finally in the market for a 400 Dollar setup this month. I pulled the trigger on a T90 yesterday since I got it for almost a DT880 600Ohm price. My budget however completely got killed. I've been using the UE9000 with an E17 for all purpose use for the past 6 months since I've started the audiophile life.
Anyways, I know the T90 is an extreme step up from my current set up. But also the price. My question isn't which amp I should by, but rather, will my E17 suffice for now since I really can't afford anything else? Can an E17 alone drive the T90. I want to wait and go big, such as the WA7 for later where I won't have to ask this ever again. Don't want to get an E09K, since a less bottleneck is still a bottleneck. Speaking of which, even Bottlehead Crack is too expensive right now.
