Recommendations for portable headphone amps., DAC's & USB DAC's.
After acquiring a mini-collection of headphones (AKG K551's, B&W P5's & Monster Beat By Dr Dre Limited Edition Detox Pro's) for listening at home or on the move, rather belatedly, i've begun to dip my toe into the ocean of high & low resolution downloads.
Just wanted some recommendations for great sounding & low battery consumption portable headphone amps., DAC's & USB DAC's for use with my iPad, laptop/Macbook Pro & smartphone.
Brands i'd be grateful to know of your experiences with include: Audioquest(Dragonfly), FiiO, HRT, iFi & Meridian.
Any of these brand's models, or any others, which stand out for you?
Look forward to knowing your thoughts.
