Thanks for the info. I think I will just go with the STX then, it seems to have a lot of fixes that the Forte should have come with and hopefully should last longer than my Forte. I think I will go with the Fiio E7/E10 for my portable gear. I am pretty sure the S3 can have the DAC bypassed via USB when I was researching it on XDA, that would definitely suck if I was wrong :(. That was one of my big complaints with older Android phones.
