So I have been doing a bit of research, and come up with 3 contenders of what I'm looking for. It is pretty much a combined amp/dac solution which doesn't cost more than $1000.

I am hoping some of you guys have experience with one or more of these, as I'm looking for an unbiased/uncoloured opinion as much as possible, as I know many of these things comes down to your own opinion.


Here are the contenders in no particular order of favourism! ;)


1. NuForce Icon HDP

2. O2+ODAC Headphone Amplifier / DAC combo                           -      

3. Woo Audio WA7 Fireflies                                                      -     

4. ALO Audio The Pan Am                                                        -     


I know the pricing is quite differerent, especially when it comes to the Woo Audio WA7 Fireflies, and that is one I would have to save up for too. I kind of want to buy one without having the need to upgrade again (although that may be wishful thinking!). 


I am eager to see your replies!
