    Question about my AKG K702s and my 80s receiver

    Cheap portable amp for K702

    Hi, I'm planning to buy a pair of AKG K702 and was looking forward an amp to pair it with. I already own a Fiio X1, and my idea was to buy a Fiio A3 (60 euros) and using it on its line output. Is it enough to drive the k702 properly?

    Recently, I bought my first pair of good headphones, the AKG K702s, they're great and my HTC 10 runs them properly thanks to the 24 bit dac it has, but when I'm at the office I don't want to get distracted by my phone and the built in headphone jack on my old macbook ran the cans poorly, also...
