    Hi,
     
    I do not have a decent source for my Atrio Mg7's, i am in the market for a DAC or a DAC/AMP(preferred) Under 150$, will be more than happy to pay 100$ i shall be getting the V MODA M80's soon too.
     
    Another question will there be any noticeable difference? i have been looking in to the UD100 and the ODAC/O2 combo.
     
    Regards,
     
    Shahab Khan.

    Current Source is Samsung Galaxy S2 and a Toshiba Laptop, i would like to have a setup that can be used with both i guess that would be USB but the portable amp should have a battery so it does not drain my phone battery.
     
    Thank you for Viewing.

    Fiio E10, USB-DAC-Headphone amplifier ($66) for the laptop.
    Fiio E11 portable headphone amplifier ($65) for the Galaxy S2
     
    Or just get the Fiio E17 ($140) for use with Galaxy and laptop

    hi guys i am really lost in this whole DAC thing, now i am either leaning towards the

    CEntrance DACport or the Odac.

    i will be driving the V-modas M80s and the Future sonic atrio Mg7 for now and the Sennheiser HD650's when i get them.
    please help me out.

    As far as I know, the Samsung Galaxy S2 can't interwork with a standard USB DAC for the time being.

    A list of standard USB DAC reportedly interworking with the Android-powered smartphone Samsung Galaxy S III / Note II can be found at the following link:

    I think it is just a portable headphone amplifier, my main concern is a DAC. thanks for the input though

    CriCri is just an amp, CriCri+ is amp and DAC

    Dear Randomkid,
     
    My bad, it is a very capable DAC as well thanks for the correction. Another nice option. How does the DAC sound in your opinion?

    Neutral in my opinion, but very detailed and maybe ever so slightly bright.
