I'll be using my Sflo:2 with my Beyerdynamic DT990 600ohm headphones and the iBasso P3+ amp to provide lots of clean power from the LO. Should sound mega sweet
Just out of curiosity, would you use that kit when you're out and about? Must be half a kilo or more of equipment there. I'm looking for a portable amp, but it has to be light and cheap (like $50 max) so the search is seeming impossible. I won't bother with the Fiio E5 (no offence intended to folks that own one, it's just not for me).
On a seperate note, I'm going on the assumption that the new players won't be ready today, or anytime soon, that way I can be pleasantly suprised if they are. Killing my hopes now avoids later dissappointment.
Only the e5 out and about even altiods tin cmoy is an extra thing to carry, if not in the office or home I would just use IEMs and no amp.
For $50 you are going to be limited to either the e5 or a basic Cmoy mint tin amp, or mini3 / other DIY. My e5 has way more power and clarity at higher volumes than CMOY-BB i favor the e5 else I think its best to save for something decent for the Sflo2 if your primary cans are full sized. You can get an amp 2nd hand of one fo the hifi forums as peeps like the swap and change thir kit.
I have been waiting for a month now, I have found the best distraction is window shopping for amps and cables
