    Need a Fiio E17 alternative, DAC/AMP

    What's the next best thing besides the Fiio E17/E09K combo? The E17 would be perfect but it lacks enough volume so I got the E09K to combo with it, but I don't like the round volume slider. You don't know precisely what the volume is at. E17 was perfect for this with their numbers.   What...

    MP3 320kbps - does higher sampling DACs matter? And is high end DAC only for high bit rate files?

    I've done a fair bit of reading on google and either I am poor at searching the right terms or the info is hard to fine.  Thanks in advance for any help on this query.    I realize that I like a lot of variety in my music and Spotify has been fantastic.  I use the paid service for the 320kbps...
