My current setup is just a superlux hd668B and a fiio e5 amp, so I need a good source. I'm already going to either buy either a good sound card or a dac, but I want something for when I am away from my computer.
My issue is that my portable listening device is my phone while all lods I have found are built for ipods only. I'm not getting an ipod since I can't afford an expensive device that has an expensive battery which will only last a few years (nor do I want to afford something like that). So... I guess if a usb lod does not exist I will have to put up with worse sound quality when away, but this would also make my amp useless buy.
So here let me list out my options I am considering:
- Get a usb lod :)
- Put up with the bad sound quality while away from computer
- Buy a cheap (I mean it) ipod with at least 8gb of space and lasting battery life along with a fiio l9 lod
I suppose if you are viewing this and you don't have an answer you could help me choose between 1) Asus Xonar DG sound card and 2) Fiio e10 or Fiio e7 dac for my computer
