Portable DAC/AMP Question
I am looking to upgrade my portable DAC/AMP which I use for my laptop based music at home / office and when away on business. I currently have a NuForce Icon uDAC2 but think I could do better.....if at the end of the day they are the same, I will use one in the office and one at home.
I have a couple of choices on this at the moment including:
iBasso D7 (second hand, six months old for £85.00)
Audinst HUD-MX1 (£115.00 - but looks like I can only get this from Korea and could incur additional import tax charges)
Fiio E17 (not sure on price off hand) - this has the added benefit of being able to use it as an amp with iPod / iPhone.
At the moment I am drawn to either the iBasso of Audinst.....what do other people think? Not really looking to pay any more than £150 max.
