Any other reasons why you added the Headsix if you already have the 2Move?
I'm just curious.
Well, I really liked the sound signature from Jan's amps. Listening to them with my recently bought UE TP 10 Pros, I can get a very clean and analythical sound, yet not fatiguing. Perfect for my ears.

But, since I carry my iPod everywhere I go, I wanted the smaller amp possible which doesn't necessarily is a DAC/AMP combo, and with a little longer battery life. That's Headsix. I really wanted to have a RSA amp to try a different sound signature, but the price difference between them made me choose the Corda, that is an excellent amp, let me add that.

Let me also add that the 2Move's DAC is incredible. Yesterday I was listinening to some of my CDs using my notebook, and I just couldn't stop. Quoting UE's slogan, hearing the music how it's meant to be heard is simply amazing

Tomahwak is really some and nice, but Hornet is a bit fat. Moreover I think all the Amps have volume comtrol...

The instruction manual for the hawk says using the headphone out is not recommended?

Using headphone out of the source is not recommended - you should use an unamplified line out which will have less distortion or noise, and feed that into the TH.

Yup, plus I may overdrive the hawk's input. I'm using a Cowon D2, it doesn't have a line out. An iPod?

I've got a Cowon D2 as well. I guess I need to find something w/a line out.
I was planning on buying something other than Cowon soon anyway.

I think I'm sticking with my D2 for now unless there is something else out there that is much better with a line out. I just can't stand an iPod. From what I gathered, Cowon's O2/S9 doesn't have a line out either. But iBasso might have a DAP in the near future, I read here somewhere.
