Hello fellow music lovers.
Current setup (desktop computer):
SHP 9500, Hifiman Deva
ILoud Micro Monitor (I have pretty serious space limitations)
In the future, I may consider similar small powered speakers, perhaps some closed back planars.
I want to make an upgrade from the aging dragonfly black in a budget of 300 Euros or so (in Europe).
Possible solutions I can get here would be a budget AIO like Ifi Micro Black Label (though this would increasing the budget), Xduoo XD 05 Plus, Earmen TR-AMP, Ifi Zen Dac, Fiio K5 Pro
or a budget stack
DAC: Topping E30, Topping D10S, SMSL Sanskit 10th, Zen Dac
AMP: Second hand Atom, Topping L30, Liquid Spark, Zen Can (with budget increase)
My choice would be the E30+L30 stack.
My main concerns are the solution to have as good line out for the speakers, as I know some AIO solutions like Fiio K5 Pro skimp out on this and for the amp to have what it takes to drive the Deva and some future closed back planar (which the Zen Dac may lack).
What do you guys think ?
