Looking for a portable DAC/AMP; $2000.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have weaned myself a long time ago from headfi when I got my lovely Pico DAC/AMP and my Audio-Technica Esw10jpn and my Fischer Audio FA-002W 200-Ohm Edition Headphones.

 

However, my Pico DAC/amp got lost last month. I need a new AMP/DAC for my laptop.

I loved the colorization my old Pico/DAC; it really did was a tube-like experience as people say. I may buy another one merely for that coloring again.

 

 

What are the current popular models at the moment as DAC/AMPs? Are those portable player devices by HiFiMan and Astell & Kern the current popular DAC/Amps at the moment?

 

Or are their better portable things out there?

Hi,

 

currently I own two marvelous amps, and i'm pleased with them : CypherLabs Theorem DAC/AMP and ALO Rx Mk3-B+ amp

 

Both match and drive my beyerdynamic and hifiman gear, ALO matching more Beyer cans...

 

HTH.

Wow, nice practical suggestions. Thanks!

 

 

I just discovered on the hype going on about that Chord Hugo; that is another option.

yes, but less "portable" (IMHO) and price seems twice the ALO or Cypher Labs.

 

BTW, the ALO MK3+ has a bass control button, to actually boost basses to adequate taste.

 

For my T5P and my ears, 40% is good enough...

 

HTH
