I agree. The Nano (g3) rigs spring to mind (expensive amps)....I would replace them with a d2 (slighlty bigger, but imo better) and livewires (<3) though! Although i would just remove the amp i think, i prefer small and my rig sounds great, and is small. I dont need anything higher, i am totally content.
My rig sounds amazing, and has far more feautures than the touch. The d2 wins hands down, and if the d3 has wi-fi, it will own. If i blew some money on a high end amp, and used lossless, it would be amazing, and i am sure the difference would be more noticable now i have better sources. I may build, test, and sell a cmoy, just for the fun of it. Afterall i loved electronics before i chose my GCSE courses.
I cant use lossless due to having so much music to re-get, and i dont want to carry an amp, and cant afford one!
After all, the U Control has elminated my need for a DAC/amp, and the d2 has eliminated my want for an amp! No hiss from either source, expandability of the D2 rules too, and i love flash support, the great screen, dab radio, small size, and sound quality in such a small package.EDIT: Only read this stuff below if you are interested in how my expenditure is so low for what i have. Thanks Filipelli!
All i need now is a pair of home headphones then im done until i grow up a bit, and have more money. Hasnt cost me much really, see my sig. (Filipelli, i got the d2 trade , so ER6i, SD cards, Livewire impressions +shipping [compimentary remember?] ZVM shipping, and ucontrol. I had the ZVM and CX300 before head-fi along with pc and laptop.
