post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey guys I recently got some sweet srh940s and now I want a portable amp to go with it.. mainly because my laptops soundcard sucks (it has beats smh).

What's the best amp under 100$, I'll mainly use it with my laptop and iphone. ? I've heard alot about the fiio e10, some suggested the e17. any other suggestions? 

Thanks

E10 can not be used on the go. E 17 is a good starter dac/amp and value for money. If you are on a very tight budget, you can also look into E07 k.

 

however, you can look this thread also, http://www.head-fi.org/t/696401/giant-list-of-sub-200-portable-dacs-w-their-chips-price

Why can't the e10 be used on the go and how is it different from the e17

Hello,

 

The E10 will only work via USB connection and does not have a line in. The E10 does not have a built into battery while the E17/E07K have one. If you are planning to use this amp/DAC for both your laptop and your iphone, I recommend the E07K + L9. The L9 is used when you wish to connect the E07K [or any other portable amp] to your iPhone; in this case, your iPhone will be used as the source and DAC and the E07K as amp. 

 

 

Hope it helps,

Billson
