Hi there! I am looking for a DAC / AMP / Interface for my PC setup. I would like to connect my headphones, KRK RP5 RoKit G3 and my microphone: Shure SM7B My budget is about 500€. What equipment do I need to save money or get the best without wasting money? Greetings!
Hope this helps.
- eBay has mostly fake Onkyos. Do not buy from there.
- I would never touch anything Phillips: poor quality and muddy sound. I'm surprised you mention it as an alternative to E700.
- Onkyo E700 is one of the best IEMs I've ever used, I'm surprised I bought it at the price I did. On Amazon.com I saw that the E700 page recommended "new model", which is actually the Pioneer SE-CH9T (because both Onkyo and Pioneer now have the same owner: some Hong Kong company). I also own this Pioneer in-ear ones now, it has more bass than E700 and is quite clear, but somehow lacks a bit of the warmth of E700m. I'd say it comes very close to E700M, and this is what I would recommend.
