so my friend comes over and brings his ibasso d4 mamba along. We started to experiment with all kinds of cables, and we got this idea of using the at-pha30i as a LOD. so we hooked it up to the ipod and stuck a 3.5mm to 3.5mm into the headphone jack on the at-pha30i. than we stuck the other end in to the input on the d4 and voila! you've got a glorified LOD with remote!
It would be great if anyone can confirm this. Im planning on getting a ibasso p3+ or a meier corda headsix/xxs. i dont want to spend extra money on an amp, so it would be great if anyone can try this out on a different amp. I'm not great at describing sound quality so I wont get in to that. (im new to head-fi)
