My Fiio E10 started to show its age and it's causing a lot of BSOD lately. I'm out of warranty I wanted to replace it. Budget is around Rs. 6K. Any recommendations or suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance!
never been fan of Sound from portable AMP/DAC combo, you should try auditioning something from Schiit audio and see whether you could perceive the difference with your rig.
most important chain in your rig is your Headphone/Earphone,/Speakers. if that is pits then no matter how much you spend on DAC or AMP, you won't gain much on Fidelity.
Thank you guys I will be using it with my Sennheiser HD 595 and Logitech Z623. They are fairly mid range so I'm not willing to spend more than Rs 5-6K. Apparently the reason for my Fiio DAC was behaving erratically for the past few weeks was the shit ASIO drivers that came along with it. I uninstalled it and everything is going good for now. I'm planning to ride it out for few more months and I probably will go for SMSL M3.
