Hey which amp would be better for gaming when paired with Philips Fidelio X2's : this amp or Fiio E10K ?
The E5 is the only portable amp / dac with an audio processor built for gaming and entertainment onboard. So if you want audio customization as well as effects like hardware accelerated virtual surround, bass expansion (not an EQ curve, but dynamic harmonics) ,voice input enhancements (etc) the E5 is going to be what you're looking for.
Also, with a pair of X2's you won't notice a huge difference between amplifiers, and both amps you listed have enough power to drive them. If you can see yourself using any of the gaming/effects features of the E5 or need the extra I/O, I'd go with the E5.
Also, keep in mid the E5 also has pretty good inbuilt microphones! :)
I have this amp with a X2 and I think it`s hard to find something that matches better.
But anyway, if you find just tell me ;)
