Best Portable Amp+DAC for Laptop/iPhone under 200$

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Dear All,

I'm about a newbie for the audiophile equipment and I'm searching the best PORTABLE configuration to apply to my Laptop and iPhone 5.

Two weeks ago I bought a Fiio E17 that sounds very fine with my Laptop but it is not compatible with my iPhone 5 as portable amp.

So I ask you to help me to choose another Amp + DAC for an audiophile to spend under 200$, I mostly listen to dance,house and commercial music.

Which can you suggest me?

 

Thanks in advance

I don't own an(y) iPhone, but you will probably need a camera connection kit (search 'CCK' in the forum) between the iPhone 5 and E17 to get it to work. Might even need a powered USB hub if E17 is drawing too much power, which makes it impractical as a portable solution. A typical USB DAC + amp that can work directly with iDevice without CCK usually cost $400 and beyond. The cheapest one I know is this, but no one know whether it actually work or how good it is, AFAIK.
