i barely notice a difference in sq using my pico as an amp only. i am not sure i could tell if my eyes were closed. using the dac vs my sound card is another story though.

Sony's amps are over emphasised in the low registers - no portable amp is as bassy as they are even when flat. If there is bass boost, it is often bigger (on an amp), but Sony definitely have oomph. The T3 hisses less than any Sony I've used other than my E636 and depending on the amp, can have better L/R separation, but there isn't that much to brag about on a number of issues.
