I am participating in the Perfect Sound Dido D901 tour, and I don't have a suitable amp to drive them. I'm thinking that I should get a used Fiio here, and then sell it when I'm done. The goal is to have a way to connect my Concero DAC to the Dido (my speaker amp is not the greatest choice...). Bonus points if the Fiio can also drive Hifiman HE-400s adequately, so I can make a fair comparison review between the two headphones. To be clear -- I will just be using this unit for a week or so, then selling it. Please don't recommend better / more expensive amps.
I'm indifferent to DAC functionality, as long as the unit has a line in. Though it would be interesting to compare the Concero to a Fiio DAC. Amp quality takes priority either way.
So which of the Fiio units has the best sounding amp section? The Dido is extremely sensitive, so power isn't really an issue.
I am not necessarily opposed to a different model of cheap amp, but I've owned a CMOY in the past and I figured it would be good to get a chance to hear a Fiio since they are so popular here.
