What are your guys'Thoughts about this vs something like a fiio e10k?
E10K is dac/amp combo while this is amp only, so you'll need to purchase a dac elsewhere to go along with this. I've previously owned E10K and I find with bass boost off it's a bit bass light and with bass boost on it's a bit bloated. So I'd personally not recommend E10K if you want the right bass amount.
I've had a E10k for 4ish years and honestly I still use it every now and then even with my main setup being a SMSL SU8 feeding a THX AAA 789 and a Little Dot MK3 SE very small form factor plenty of power for anything I own (even on low gain) has the optional bass boost which on more neutral headphones is very nice to have. I would recommend it unless you can find a deal on the K3 (newer version of E10K). Last I checked E10K's are still going for $70-$80 new and the K3 is $100
Yeah I bought my e10k a year ago on eBay for 55new (they were on sale). The drive my beyerdynamic dt 990 pro's I use for gaming. I like it, but as hyde said, this is not a dac/amp, just an amp. So it wouldn't be what I'd need anyways. Didn't read this before I asked the question lol. Thanks for the input.
Didn't realize that *facepalm*
