Wow, after so long a ton of comments come rushing in.   For everyone's information, I got the HP-P1 in the end. I absolutely love the sound it produces. I also got some HD 800s and am setting up a desktop setup.   @TekeRugburn - JDS Labs appear to have discontinued the C421 and moved on with the C5.   I also managed to take a listen to Justin's [JustAudio] amps. and they are VERY good.   In the end it became an Amperior setup with my HP-P1; but I also...
Thanks.   FYI, a comparison for the use as an amp. + DAC over USB with a computer would be useful, as well (as a general LOD -> 3.5mm iDevice comparison).   I really appreciate this. Thanks, Ashade.
  If you still have both, would you mind comparing the SQ for me? Whilst I have another amp. & DAC [HP-P1] that I use for home, commuting on transport [bus, train, plane, etc.] and similar uses, it's not the best for walking around or using when I want to go out late [not necessarily something - due to size and worried about it getting damaged at late hours when I may be careless!] with.   So for a bash-around rig., I was considering either the E07K and E17. Whilst I will...
In regards to the DACs and amps., I think that if it's going to be truly portable setup and I can't skip the built-in DAC, then I'm better off getting a better amp. rather than something that is a DAC + amp. [single unit]. Therefore, so far ...it seems to be out of the C421 - both the OP2227 and AD8620 - and the E12 [currently unreleased]. 
Although the Sanza players have been highly rated and are incredibly affordable, I want a larger screen and much more storage. The iPod Classic with a LOD seemed to be the best option [for the LOD side of things].
Bump.
UPDATE: Due to not being able to skip the iPod's DAC, I feel that it may be pointless to get a DAC, rather than just getting an amp. alone - I'd be getting a desktop setup at some point in time. Therefore, I have taken a strong interest in the C421 amp. by JDS Labs.   What do people think of such a choice? [Also; which precision amplifier to go for? The 'OPA2227', or the 'AD8620'?]   (The upcoming) E12 vs C421 ...or even [although it does also include a DAC]...

Due to nearly none, but about 2-4 DACs supporting the ability to skip the built-in DACs within devices, such as the iPod Classic, would it then be pointless to get an E17 and instead get an E12?   What would the SQ be like? Over the past few days, I've only begun looking into amps., DACs and amp. + DACs [single units], etc. Therefore, please go easy on me!      Thanks!     ...and yes; I must agree with Bowei's point on the charging. If a change could be...
Hello, everyone;   First and foremost, I'm quite new to Head-Fi. I had an old account - which I need someone to close; so if an admin./moderator can send me a PM on this account, I will send a PM to you, with the relevant information regarding the other account -, but had hardly posted in that, either. [I know that you can ask - voluntarily - for an account to be banned, however.]   --- Introduction --- Although having a pair of TF10s, a Null Audio Lune cable...
