I've used my 271's with an iPod Nano. It's not perfect but it works reasonably well. I wouldn't want to carry the 271's around with me though. I've also used the 271's with an iPhone 2G and iPhone 3GS with comparable results.
I've had my RP6's for a year or two now and I have been very pleased with them. It never hurts to listen to a few different things before you buy but the KRK's are certainly a great option to look into.

I found it, and a bunch of other great shots, on Flickr in the vacuum tube group. I'd recommend checking it out.

This is just a quick and dirty picture of my current computer rig. Now that I've finally gotten the HD600's I think that I can take a bit of a break before I upgrade the amp. I'm really very pleased with how this sounds for what it is...
Also, I like my tube source
If you go to the JDS Labs site and read the user manual there are specifications and links to specific supplies.
I have bought two of the Philips supplies off e-bay without trouble (although the first one got beaten by USPS and died after a few months).
When I first bought my KRK's I had the same question. One popular recommendation at the time was the Nano Patch.
However, in the end I found that it was much cheaper and more convenient to use my LD mkII as a pre rather than messing with a whole other piece of equipment.
I recently took the next step in upgrading my rig by getting a LD mkII and a set of HD600's. So far I'm very please with the improvement in sound but being new to tubes and high impedance headphones I have a few questions.
My main concern is getting the gain properly set on the LD mkII. It is currently set to "lowest" gain (according to Petchum's review) since I was using it with my AKG K271's. When I got my HD600's I went ahead and plugged them in to try them out and...
