e07k for superlux hd668b? or is there a cheaper dac/amp combo?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

i plan to buy hd668b headphones and i plan to use them on my desktop (no sound card atm), ps3 and laptop. i need a dac and probably a amp for them but i need it to not only work on my desktop and laptop but also on my ps3. i have the option of optical and 3.5mm open for ps3 assuming the ps3 would even benefit from a dac. actually i am not sure if those headphones even need an amp at all. if i can fully power them on laptop and ps3 i guess ill only need a dac right? i did do some looking around and i keep seeing the e07k being mentioned and it seems like what i exactly need but the problem is i dont need portability and what happens when the battery runs dry? would i still be able to use it on my computers via usb and on ps3 again using usb for power but using the 3.5mm in for audio? if anyone knows a better and cheaper solution i am all ears, my budget is 80$ and if it helps, music i normally listen to is classical and film score but also some jazz and some dubstep so something that can push a little more bass out of those headphones (just a little) while maintaining detail and highs would be awesome or something just neutral.

You can always buy a Fiio E7 for 65$ (Amazon prices...)

it's not worse than the E07K (85$)

i was checking out the e7 but i rather grab the upgrade for the same price used. i still dont know if i could use it plugged in after the battery is long dead though. i was also checking out the hifimediy but i do not know what type of dac i should pair with it or if i need one at all. anyone have any opinions on the hifimediy sabre? is there any hiss to it? and any eq software for it?

The Sabre is good, but might not be "strong" enough.. its amp is really "weak" in comparison to fully fledged amps.
