Hey Mark, I just got my T3 in and tried it with my new TF10 customs - I totally agree, it's a huge difference! I was actually not expecting any difference. But amped with the iBasso T3, gain 0, about 4-5 volume, the instruments were better separated and defined, there was more energy and sparkle, the bass was tighter, and everything was just generally more articulated. I did a couple A/B tests to be sure, with different types of music, and it's totally undeniable - it's significantly better going through the LOD to the T3 than just through the iphone 2gs headphone out (which is supposed to be quite good on its own, for all you apple-haters out there
I'm still piecing my system together, with parts are still coming hopefully the end of this week. I'll give my impressions of the T3 as opposed to the filo e5 and the Meier XXS, just for kicks.
