I'm in the market for a new DAC/amp and I've heard many good things about the FiiO products. However, I can't decide which one would be best for my situation.
I currently use a Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 80 Ohm headset and an Asus Xonar DG soundcard. The soundcard does not sit well in my case and has caused many problems in the past, so I'm looking to move away from it for another device. The only problem I fear in doing this is that I currently use the "Rock" equalizer preset on the Xonar Audio Center, as the default sounds terrible to me (it feels like I'm listening to the sounds underwater when the preset isn't on). I hope that dropping this preset and replacing the Xonar won't cause me to feel like I've downgraded my audio setup.
I mostly want this for listening to .mp3/.flac music and would like to spend no more than £60-80 if possible. I would assume I'd be looking at the e10 but I have no idea how the others compare and I'm not sure whether the portable ones can be used as desktop items.
So yeah, I'd really appreciate if somebody could give me some help or an opinion on this.
If there's anything I've done wrong or left out please let me know.
