headphone.com has response graphs**

I can't find these graphs on the site. Where are they?

wicked sorry, I just realized I missed this comment earlier.

It's burried on their site, here's a direct link. Take their stuff with a gain of salt, I've got a factory response plot for my LCD-2 and it's different in the 1.5k region and 11k region but it's the same under 1khz. It's a nice way to get an idea of how something might sound.

No worries I finally found them.

Has anyone used the FiiO E10? It seems to have gotten better reviews than the E7 and nuForce USB DAC. Its only $80. I'm looking for something in the ~$100 range.

I didn't think the fiio dac worked without their amp.

Its this one. It has a usb input on the back and the headphones plug in on the front. There is also a coax output on the back. It is a DAC and a headphone amp

gotcha, I'm thinking of the older one. The E7/E9 combo (the line-out on the E7 is funny like that).
