Hi Head-fi community!
I am new to the world of DAC and AMPs for headphone and can't seem to decide between E17 and E17K.
I like the new minimal design of E17K more than E17 and it's supposed to be better sound quality,
also it's with common usb plug which can be used from any cell phone to connect with laptop.
I read a few reviews saying E17K is not as well built and still has some hardware (scroll wheel) and software issues.
I guess E17K is still very new and will need some time to iron these issues out. Also it doesn't have optical (which is not a huge issue for me).
Now, I am getting
E17 for 103 USD
E17K for 141 USD
Also E07K for 88USD
Which is better to buy? Is E17K substancially better in terms of sound quality?
If I buy the older model E17 is there any implication in terms of future compatibility etc?
Could anyone help me to decide?
Thanks in advance! :)
