Should I use the pico slim as a semi desktop amp?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I have the pico slim. I sold my desktop rig because i didnt have much time and the foot print was way too much. Now im in to portable but I find myself not really finding a need to use an amp with my S:FLO and SM3.  Should i use the pico with my musiland or should i sell the pico slim and buy a different amp... like a p-51, ibasso Dsomething or other... or what? i bought one of those bravo amps but thats more because it seems fun, i dont expect to big a sound from it though.  looking for a small size and can power low imp phones like grados or the beyer t50p.  Thanks for any help.

AMPs+DAC for desktop use like D4 Mamba, Pico, D10 or new iBasso AMPs PB1 Toucan............

was considering the protector or P-51... would those be better choices to drive non-IEMs? the only reason im kinda iffy on the protector is the specialized connector. =\

Some of the amps you mentioned have no more power output than the Pico Slim, some have more.  You should look into that.  BTW - the 'original' Pico Amp is twice as powerful as the Slim so it will do better with full size headphones.
