I'm looking to get back into learning bass guitar, and since I work long hours in a computer ops center with lots of free time, thinking about practicing at work on weekends and noghts.  But, headphone amps for bass and guitar are almost universally cheap POS.     Is there a CMOY or other small handheld amp that works with instrument level inputs instead of line-level?   Ideally:   1. USB power, possibly with recharging circuit for internal off the shelf batteries,...
So, for those of us who won't / can't leave the Apple ecosystem, any recommendations on :   Lightning based headphones Lightning compatible DACs/Headphone amps (portable) Bluetooth headphones   Haven't seen yet if the iPhone 7 will support AptX, I dearly hope so if I can't plug in anymore.  I have a pair of JBL Bluetooth cans that sound pretty good over bluetooth without AptX, but it would be nice for something even better.
UDAC-3 is back on Massdrop with lowest price $68.99.  Good to have as a backup?  I just got an Arcam rLink on eBay two weeks ago for my desktop - no USB, using optical from the Realtek chipset audio card.  I could throw this in instead and then have the optical DAC for other devices at home.
Work is playing the Hans Zimmer station on Pandora - all movie themes.  For two days.  And my cans are at home #saveme
Well, I bit. I hope I didn't just take one for the team in the quest to support those developing new equipment. I'll let y'all know in December I guess.
I was hoping some people had more info on it.  Or opinions on that DAC chip.
I think I posted this in the wrong forum - can I move it somehow to the full size headphone amplifier forum?
Does it have to be a movie you've watched for the first time?  I just watched Lilo and Stitch again last night.  Almost 50 years old, but I still tear up when Stitch says "This is my family.  It's small, and broken, but still good. Yes, still good."
Has anyone looked at The Billie Amp on Kickstarter?  Any thoughts?  Good looks, definitely.  Tube preamp, solid state amplifier, 125 watts.  Inputs include turntable, RCA, optical and AptX Bluetooth. I asked what DAC they were using and got this response: (apologize if there's already a thread - didn't see it in my search)
