I'm looking for help in choosing may new DAP.
I'm doubting between the X5 (I also have a FIIO E18) and ... the Astell&Kern AK100 MKII ... (at 2x the price)
OR ... HiFiMan HM-700 (looks good but small storage)
Maybe a bit a strange list-up, but can somebody give me some input on "can you hear the difference"?
I'm looking to build on my audio files and setup. I really love music and classical in particular.
The DAP will be most used with IEM's (I'll probable get Shure 535 or Westone W40 ... Grado GR10 ...)
Headsets: Beyerdynamic DT880 250Ohm (half-open), AKG K551 (closed), Pioneer DJE-2000 IEM's
Source: Galaxy S5 + FIIO E18 (PowerAMP), iPod Classic 160GB + same FIIO E18 + L9 30pin cable
I'm a bit at a loss to make a decision, as well for the DAP as for the IEM's.
Maybe some other suggestions?
DAP max price I consider is 1000€ should it be a mega fantastic difference with other options.
All input is very much appreciated ... not easy ...
