Best sounding and most powerful USB powered DAC/Amp combo?

    I was thinking Apogee One or the Duet.  Your thoughts or experience on which is the BEST sounding and most powerful USB powered DAC/Amp combo?
    Apogee One:

    The Duet isn't USB-powered, it uses Firewire, which has a higher output.  The Duet has a quite reasonable headphone amp built in, but nothing particularly special.

    I'm going to throw it out there. How about the Fiio E10?

    Ooh, old thread bump.  There's now a USB Duet II.

    And the Ibasso D7 too.

    The DAC/AMPs like E17+E9, XM6(upgraded buffers put out full one watt), D7, D12 are powerful enough for portable use.
