Try the HA-2SE with your 846's on low gain. It is brilliant with IEM's. my Westones really do shine on the OPPO compared to my mojo, its just very very smooth and refined. I don't personally have the 846's but I've seen many people over at the HA2-se section who say that its the best sound they've heard from their 846's even compared to certain AK DAC's
The original HA2 has so much background hiss with the SE846's I could'nt listen to it. I even contacted Oppo and they said it could be an issue for the 9 Ohm SE846's as one of lowest impedance IEMS's. Have they fixed the noise level with the SE ?
I'm happy now with my SE846/Mojo combination. If I spend more money now it will be to add the Chord Poly to my Mojo or buy a fully featured streaming DAP like the Pioneer 300R or the upcoming Fiio X5 3rd gen.
