Mine is Rockboxed :)    The more I think about it, there is no sense in upgrading both the player and headphones.  I will try out new headphones first and then consider DAPs later if I need to.  The clip is best suited for what I mostly use it for.  
Similar portability, better sound.     I have not researched this in ages.  The Fiio X1 looks interesting.  It is much bigger though.  But apparently more powerful and some reviews have mentioned a lower noise floor.   I am thinking of getting new headphones as well.  
I am looking for new headphones with decent clarity and bass.  I wear my headphones mostly in the gym and behind the ear just doesn't work well for me when being active.  It looks like the VSONIC VSD3 is better then the VSD1 but mainly designed for behind the ear use.  Am I right about this?  Would the VSD1 be the best choice for cable down?   Xiaomi Piston is another consideration but it looks like it is a less powerful headphone and I listen at moderate to high volumes...
I have a newer Clip Zip.  (My old clip had its clip break and it seems impossible to find the replacement.)   The sansa clip zip works great for what I use it for (gym).  I just wondered what else is out there.  
Hey Pabbi1,   I was wondering how this turned out?  I am wanting to build a super small Champ clone myself.  Any advice on how to source the parts cheaply?  There is also a Micro Champ out there I thought of as well.   -Mark
    Does this mean you prefer it over the Bantam DAC??       Are all these kits coloured like that?  I am not partial to white cable.  If I built it, I would go black.    Can you use this in reverse???  (ie.  take an analog signal and convert to digital for recording?)   I had an idea of building a tube preamp for guitar and then have it output to the GrubDAC rcas into the computer for digital recording.    
I haven't been on Head-fi for ages now.    I have been using a Line 6 Guitar port as my DAC into a Millet Starving Student that I built.  I always thought the Guitarport as a DAC wasn't ideal.  But I also am not sure how happy I am with the MHSS as an amp for the D2000s.  I had contemplated building a DAC at one point but then I got really busy with work and a guitar amp project.  Work is still busy and I gave up on the guitar amp too.   I could buy a combo...
Hmm, I don't think it is going to work out. I didn't find too much cool stuff here electronics wise. Tube amps seem pretty uncommon.
I am currently in Taipei visiting for a few days. I had hoped to find a place with tube based amps and electronics. (Also planning to build a guitar amp). Is there an area of Taipei known for tube amps?
So I went shopping the other day and forgot I had my clip with me. It is long gone now. The sad thing is that they sell the 4gb version for 150$ in Australia! I can't even find the 8gb ones and they are just $49 at Walmart in NA! If anyone knows of an online store that sells these at a good price let me know. Or if anyone can send me one I can pay by paypal! Or does anyone know where I can buy one in Tokyo? I am going on a short trip soon
