Best DAC/AMP Combo Unit for ~$100?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

Let me start off by saying that I am fairly new to the audio world, as I just purchased some Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 250 Ohm cans and a Fiio E10 Olympus.

 

Problem being, I got a Fiio E10 with a bad headphone jack that has static and buzzing noises that have worsened over my few days of ownership. I will be returning it to Amazon as I can't get a replacement.

 

On to the question, should I order another E10 or is there something better for not much more than the E10 Olympus? I don't need something portable enough for a phone, but I'd like a smaller sized combo-unit, as I transport my things back and forth between my parent's houses every 7 days. I don't want anything fancy, something that will power my DT770s well, as well as similar impedance cans. A DAC/AMP combo with USB power and a headphone output is all I really need.

 

Easy availability in Canada is preferred, as I don't want to run my DT770s on onboard for any longer than I need to.

 

EDIT: I am willing to pay $150 or less. A little bit more will be considered if you guys feel it will be worth while. I don't know how to change the title.

 

Thanks, 

 

Devon

I'd prefer a more desktop oriented one in the fashion of the E10 if possible.

 

Also, how much different is the E17 vs E10?

It is said that the E17 is slightly better than the E10. It comes to personal preference i think.
