    I just bought a pair of HiFiman HE-400's and they're amazing. I have a FiiO E7 DAC/AMP and though they do power them, I feel I could get MUCH more out of these cans. I heard that the FiiO E17 could power them really well, and I thought why not pair it with the E9K. Does anyone know how this sounds with the HiFiman HE-400's? And yes, I am aware that they are pretty easy to run. I just feel as though I could get MUUUUUCH more out of them with a better amp and DAC.

    Out of curiosity is the sound quality difference between the E11 and the E17 really noticeable?

    I would not think there would be a Hugh difference between the E7 and E17 for driving the Hifiman HE-400 38-Ohm headphones.
    But I have zero experience with the HE-400, try asking on this thread.
    What would you be plugging the DAC/Amp into (sources)?

    I have it plugged into my Alienware M14x laptop, playing FLAC/ALAC/AAC on Foobar2000.
