IMHO both of these are overkill for the 3DT, especially if its your main iem.Which one would be a better pairing for 3DT, DX300 (either AMP11 Mk2 or AMP12) or RS6, what do you think? Speaking of sound quality and signature, let alone footprint etc., and also considering that used DX300 is ~20% cheaper than RS6 now.
I'm stuck choosing between these two DAPs, becoming sick of dongles, while 3DT is still my main go-to IEM
Don’t get me wrong, i love my 3DTs for their timbre and engagement, but they don’t scale with better equipment to the extent I'd feel comfortable with the added expense.
(In my case this is from dongles S1 & Pee51) to CayinN3pro to ifi micro bl to WM1A to R2R2000)
I suspect that the R5 or the dx160 or the AK sr25 would be equally good under most circumstances with the 3DT, at half the cost of your two options.
If you’re thinking of buying higher level phones eventually than sure go your path, but under what you’ve outlined I’d set my sights lower.
I’d audition the two levels to see if you can rationalise the higher cost vs audible performance. Let us know the outcome…
